# MCQs on States of Matter for NEET

The three basic states in which a matter can exist are solid, liquid and gas. A matter can exist in one or more than one state, e.g. water exists in all three states. The state of a matter depends on the intermolecular forces and arrangement of molecules. The chemical property of a substance remains the same, irrespective of its state but the rate of reaction changes with the change in the physical state. On increasing and decreasing the temperature or pressure, one state of a matter gets converted to another state. Apart from these, there are two other states of matter known as Plasma and Bose-Einstein Condensate.
