Fixed volume, takes shape of the container.
 A solid B liquid C gas D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -A liquid can flow and take the shape of its container. Gases donâ€™t have a fixed shape or a fixed volume. The particles move around all the time and spread out. This is why a gas fills its container.

Detailed explanation-2: -Liquids occupy a fixed volume but no fixed shape. This is because the particles in the liquid state are not packed closely and also arranged disorderly. There are spaces between the particles, that is the particles are bound by loose intra-molecular forces of attraction.

Detailed explanation-3: -Because the particles in liquids are very close together (barely further apart than in solids) liquids do not easily compress, so their volume is fixed.

Detailed explanation-4: -However, because the particles can move about each other rather freely, a liquid has no definite shape and takes a shape dictated by its container. Liquids have the following characteristics: No definite shape (takes the shape of its container).

Detailed explanation-5: -The forces between liquid particles are weaker than the forces between solid particles. This means that liquid particles are further apart and can move about more easily. Since the particles can move, the liquid can flow and take the shape of its container.
