Liquid is one of the four states of matter (the others are

solid, gas and plasma). A liquid has a definite volume (unlike a

gas) and no definite shape (unlike a solid).

The word "fluid" is often used in everyday speech as a synonym

for "liquid", but in chemistry a fluid is defined by its ability to

flow, and thus the word encompasses both liquids and gases.

Actually it is apart of the three states of matter solid and gas

and liquid the rest is right
