True about kinetic molecular theory? a) The volume of the gas particles is negligible compared to the average distance between any two particles. b) Pressure is due to the collisions of the gas particles with the walls of the container?

Is it not clearly $b$?

Explanation:

$a$ maintains that the volume of the gas particles is negligible compared to the distance BETWEEN any two particles....and this does not even make any sense. On the other hand, pressure is certainly conceived to be due to the impact of the gaseous particles with the walls of the container.
