  1. About eighty of the naturally occuring elements are solids at room temperature, in the pure state. Two are liquids. Nine are gases.

    This does not include chemical compounds. Most elements are found in nature (on Earth) combined with other elements. The six inert gas elements are an exception.

    The question is a bit confusing, because most elements IN THE UNIVERSE AS A WHOLE are found in stars, where (because of the high temperatures) they are gases.
