What state of matter spreads out to fill a space?
Herein, which state of matter do the particles spread apart and fill all the space available?

|The resistance of a liquid to flowing is its||viscosity|
|Particles of a liquid||are free to move around one another but still touch|
|In which state of matter do the particles spread apart and fill all the space available to them?||gas|
Beside above, what is the space between particles of matter called? it is called intermolecular spaces are present in between particles of matter. this is the answer according to your question.
Similarly one may ask, why does a gas fill the entire available space?
Gas particles spread out to fill a container evenly, unlike solids and liquids. When more gas particles enter a container, there is less space for the particles to spread out, and they become compressed. The particles exert more force on the interior volume of the container. This force is called pressure.
Which state of matter flows but does not fill its container?
A solid will retain its shape; the particles are not free to move around. Liquid matter is made of more loosely packed particles. It will take the shape of its container. Particles can move about within a liquid, but they are packed densely enough that volume is maintained.
