Answer:

To undergo the phase transition #"solid phase"# to #"gaseous phase."#

Explanation:

Some solids can be sublimed under reduced pressure, and elevated temperature. And some solids can sublime at atmospheric pressure. The best example is dry ice or card ice, #CO_2(s)#, which the Italians call #"secco ghiaccio"#.

Dry ice sublimes at #1*atm# and #-78.5# #""^@C#.
