Why richer mix requires a lower content of fine sand?

For a mix to be sufficiently workable, it must contain sufficient amount of material smaller than a 300 μm (No. 50 ASTM) sieve. Since the cement particles are included in this material, a richer mix requires a lower content of fine sand as compared to a lean mix.
