Well, nothing makes us madder than when people say matter doesn't matter.
Now, matter exists in three different states.
Unless it's standing at the four corners monument.
Then it exists in all four states. But, really, just three states.
To answer this, let's think about what matter is.
Well, matter is everything.
Our bed? Matter. The air we breathe? Matter.
The soda we're drinking? Yep, that's matter.
And us? Yeah, we're a whole bunch of matter, too.
And really cool matter, if we toot our own horn a bit.
The easiest way to answer this question is to think about water.
When we put water in our freezer, we get ice, a solid.
Ice, ice, baby.
When we let ice melt, we get water, a liquid.
If we decide to, say, boil that water to make some tea,
we notice steam rising from the pot,
and that's a gas. So the correct answer here is C.
Now if only we could remember to refill that ice tray.
