Answers

Because if the water overflows the inside graduated cylinder the outside larger container will catch it. When the measurements of rain are taken the height of the water in the small graduated cylinder is measured and excess overflow in the large container is carefully poured into another graduated cylinder and measured to give the total rainfall.
