The correct answer is the second statement. Particles in a solid can only vibrate. In a liquid, they slide against each other. In a gas, they move freely, bouncing and bumping into each other. Solids are packed thus molecules are restricted and can only vibrate. Liquids, on the other hand, molecules can move and slide against each other since they are loosely packed. Lastly, gas particles is very loosely packed so they can move freely.
