The book says like this-

The water content in the renal artery's blood is different from the renal vein's blood. -is that right?

I know ADH is a hormone which monitors the kidney to reabsorb water into the blood. Nontheless if the water if being reabsorbed back into the blood, wouldn't that mean the blood in the renal artery would be equaivalent to the blood in the renal vein?

because the ren (I translate it as kidney) job is doing filtration, absorbtion and augmentation...so I think it's clear enough if there's a difference between artery and vein related about the amount of molecules mentioned above..
