Explanation:

$\Rightarrow$ Gases and Solids can be compressed where as Liquid cannot be compressed..

$\Rightarrow$ They have different molecular structure..

$\Rightarrow$ Gases have spaces between their inter-molecular bond where as Solid has tight inter-molecular bond..

$\Rightarrow$ Solids and Liquids have definite volume where as Gasses don't have definite volume..

$\Rightarrow$ Solids have definite shape where as Gasses and Liquids have indefinite shape..

$\Rightarrow$ Gas particles have enough kinetic energy to overcome inter-molecular forces that hold solids and liquids together..
