Do only liquids have such a behaviour??? not gases and solids?

It's because when we heat a solid it's molecules get scattered but when we cool the liquid it starts freezing

All of these i.e solids,liquids,gases all expand on heating and contracts on cooling as heat energy makes particles moves faster and vice versa.

for solid: railway track,electrical power cables hung and tighten
for liquids:mercury in thermometer
gases:dish cooking in kitchen and ice cream kept open,hot air balloon

When substances expand or contract, their particles stay the same size. It is the space between the particles that changes: the particles in a solid vibrate more when it is heated, and take up more room. the particles in a liquid move around each other more when it is heated, and take up more room.
