It's not that thick and thin liquids take different amounts of time to boil, it's that they take different amounts of heat. You can apply a small amount of heat to something thick like lotion for days, and it will never boil if there isn't enough heat.

A liquid boils when its intermolecular forces are broken. A "thin" liquid is less viscous, therefore one would expect its intermolecular forces to be less and, therefore, it would boil more quickly.

Viscous - thick

Volatile - easily evaporated

It mostly depends on the viscosity not on how much or anything liek that also how much heat you are putting on to the liquid

thick liquids boil faster because the particles are closer together so heat passes from one particle to another more quickly

Assuming that you mean will the thin liquid flow faster, then yes. Try it...over the sink with filling a cup with honey or water.

Neither thinness, thickness, or viscosity have nothing to do with how fast liquids boil.

Yes.

There's more intramolecular attraction in dense, sticky liquids. So evaporation is also slower in the thick ones.

The answer is in the question. The definition of melt is to make liquid. So therefore both "thin" and "thick" liquids have already reach a state of being melted.

Is paint solid liquid or solid?

It's theoretically a liquid - however - it's a bit more complicated than that. Paint is a 'suspension' - in that there are microscopic particles of powdered pigments suspended in (usually) a liquid that evaporates, Once the paint is in contact with the air - the liquid part evaporates - leaving the coloured pigment behind.

Why does water evaporates faster than other liquids?

Some liquids evaporate faster than others. Not all liquids evaporate slower than water; for example, alcohol evaporates much faster. The reasons for differences are related to the size of the molecules and in general the forces between molecules; as well as differences in specific heat.
