Explanation: When you pour water into the bottle that isn't sealed, the air inside it escapes through the opening at the top. But the in the sealed bottle, the air can't escape, that means the bottle has air pressure. The water has the force of gravity, but the air pressure inside the bottle is too strong, so the air can't get in, or can get in only in little drips.
