Default Percent Sugar

I have refractometer and a chart to convert Brix to SG...but

does either tell me what is the sugar content of the liquid?

I mean how do I know if the liquid is say 10% sugar?

You answered your own question.

1 brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100 g water. Or 1% sucrose by weight.

10 brix = 10% sucrose, by weight

As our local Lex Brodie would say, "Thank you very much".
