    Only one of these substances is in the correct phase in which it can expand to occupy volume, but can also be compressed to fit into a smaller volume. Think can a solid expand and contract to a large degree? No. What about a liquid can it expand to a large degree? No, although it can expand and be compressed better than a solid. So that leaves us with the only gas being neon. Sorry i was not here when you asked the question.
