Dear student,     
Please find below the solution to the asked query               
Initial amount of soil = 200 g
Amount of soil left after drying = 170 g
Amount of moisture in the soil= 200-170 = 30 g

% moisture content = Amount of moisture in soil/ initial amount of soil x 100
                                = 30/200 * 100 
                                = 15 %
