(c) The correct order of increasing ‘force of attraction’ between their particles is

Oxygen < Water < Sugar

It is because the force of attraction increases in the order

i.e., Gas < Liquid < Solid.

  • Intermolecular forces are forces of attraction or repulsion which act between neighbouring particles (atoms,moleculesorions). These force keep a molecule together.
  • In solid, a particle can vibrate but they can not move. Sugar is solid.
  • In liquid, the force of attraction is weaker than solid. Water is a liquid.
  • In gas, the particle moves fast in a random direction, so there is no force of attraction. Oxygen is a gas.
