Answer :

Adding water to acids release energy. We can experience it by touching at test tube (it becomes hot), sometimes the heat is too large to handle and glasses of container or test tube may explode and acid can spill over. So we always take water in excess and drop acid drop by drop, so that heat produced can be cooled down by this water and accidents can be prevented.
