before answering this question you should know that for  reduction of meatal oxide the gibbs energy should be negative,this is a mandatory condition 

in solid state ,the entropy or randomness will be less due high intermolecular force of  attraction while in liquid state,the entropy will be more comparitively therefore gibss energy will be more negative
