a) to see which of the two groups produce more or less urine.
b) them same amount of subjects in each group, the same amount of liquid consummed. and at the same time.
c) I think the subject drinking the water will produce more urine, than the coffe drinkers. But I am not sure why.

A hypothesis states the outcome the researcher expects. Your hypothesis is that water drinkers will produce more urine.
For b, you may want to make sure that all subjects have emptied their bladders before starting the experiment. Also, what about the ages, sizes, and physical conditions of the subjects?
