Answer

See explanation below.

Work Step by Step

The particles in a gas are further apart than those are in a liquid. a) The greater empty space between gas molecules allows gases to be more compressible than liquids. b) The greater empty space between gas molecules allows gases to flow with less resistance (hindrance) than liquids. c) The large empty space between gas molecules limits their interaction, allowing all mixtures of gases to be solutions. d) The large empty space between gas molecules increases the volume of the gas, therefore decreasing the density.
