MCQ

The property to flow is unique to fluids. Which one of the following statements is correct?

Options

  • Only gases behave like fluids

  • Gases and solids behave like fluids

  • Gases and liquids behave like fluids

  • Only liquids are fluids

Solution

Gases and liquids behave like fluids

Gases and liquids behave like fluids. Both gases and liquids tend to flow due to less force of attraction between their particles. Also, they require vessels to keep them. Solids do not flow.
