Solution

The correct option is C They can flow
The three states of matter are – solid, liquid and gas. All the three states have different  properties. Liquids and gases have the property of fluidity, that is flowing from a region of a higher level to a region of the lower level. They possess this property because the intermolecular space between their molecules is not closely packed. Therefore gases and liquids flow.
