See explanation...

#### Explanation:

color(purple)("There are 5 states of matter"

Solid

$\cdot$color(blue)("Have definite shape"

$\cdot$color(blue)("Not compressable"

$\cdot$color(blue)("It has molecules tightly packed"

$\cdot$color(blue)("Have fixed volume"

$\cdot$color(blue)("They become gas during Sublimation"
color(brown)("(a process of changing solid directly into gas )"

$\cdot$color(blue)("They become liquid when heated"

$\cdot$color(blue)("Example:Table,Chair..etc.."

Liquid

$\cdot$color(orange)("Have a definite volume"

$\cdot$color(orange)("Do not have a definite shape"

$\cdot$color(orange)("Can be compressed"

$\cdot$color(orange)("Take the shape of the container it is present"

$\cdot$color(orange)("It has molecules that are a little bit far away"

$\cdot$color(orange)("They become solid when cooled"

$\cdot$color(orange)("They become gas when heated"

$\cdot$color(orange)("Example:Water,Oil..etc.."

Gas

$\cdot$color(violet)("Do not have a definite shape"

$\cdot$color(violet)("Do not have a definite volume"

$\cdot$color(violet)("Can be compressed"

$\cdot$color(violet)("Take the shape of the container"

$\cdot$color(violet)("They become as liquid when cooled"

$\cdot$color(violet)("They become solid when deposition"
color(brown)("(a process of changing gas directly into a solid )"

$\cdot$color(violet)("Example:Oxygen,Neon..etc..."

Plasma

$\cdot$color(red)("Ionised gas"
$\text{(contains Ions)}$

$\cdot$color(red)("Referred to as the Fourth state of matter"

$\cdot$color(red)("It is very hot"

Bose-Einstein Condensate
