Solution

The correct option is D expanded and compressed
Gases can be expanded because molecules are at a greater distance from one another and move freely in all directions. They have least intermolecular forces of attraction. Compression forces the gas particles to come closer and this reduces the space between them. In liquids and solids, the particles are in constant contact with one another and thus they have little room for compression.
