    Explanation
    Chocolate, salt, and wood are all examples of solids. Solids are a state of matter characterized by a definite shape and volume. They have a fixed structure and particles that are closely packed together. Chocolate is a solid because it is a solid form of cocoa and other ingredients. Salt is a solid compound made up of sodium and chloride ions. Wood is also a solid as it is derived from trees and has a solid and rigid structure. Honey, on the other hand, is a liquid and does not have a definite shape or volume, so it is not a solid.
