  1. Yes.
    Anything we consume that contain water, even things like soup, cucumber, milk and similar count towards the recommended daily fluid consumption.
    Because the recommended amount of fluid for the average person is about 2 litres ( it goes up roughly 1 litre per hour of sweating), if I ate soup for every meal of the day (portion of 400 millilitres), I would only need 2 and a bit glasses of water (glasses are typically 250–350 millilitres) to make the daily quota.
    Also, even caffeinated teas and coffee count toward you fluid intake, because the whole thing is water, if you added milk, that counts too.
    I hope that this helps you.

  2. All liquids that we consume are water-based. Wellness gurus wanting to sell you Miracle Rehydratoflaff will tell you they don’t count, but all liquids count towards your daily water intake (which is kinda an arbitrary figure, anyway). Various beverages have various diuretic effects, alcohol being the worst of the common ones, but decaffeinated anything is not a diuretic, so if you’re measureing your fluid intake, score your decaf liquids as “water”.
    Here’s what the Mayo Clinic says on the topic.
