Solution: The first diagram depicts a compound in its liquid state.Which of the other diagrams best depicts the compound after it has evaporated into a gas?

Problem

The first diagram depicts a compound in its liquid state.
A collection of molecules consisting of two gray spheres combined with a lighter-colored sphere. The molecules are relatively close together with no ordered arrangement.

Which of the other diagrams best depicts the compound after it has evaporated into a gas?
Four diagrams, a, b, c, and d. Diagram a is a collection of molecules consisting of two gray spheres combined with a lighter-colored sphere. The molecules are relatively far apart with no ordered arrangement. Diagram b is a collection of isolated gray and lighter-colored spheres randomly distributed throughout the sample. Diagram c is a collection of molecules, some of which are composed of two gray spheres and others composed of two lighter-colored spheres. Diagram d is a collection of gray spheres, and gray and lighter-colored spheres combined as a molecules randomly distributed throughout the sample.
