Refrigerators are usually kept at about \rm 5^{\circ}C, while room temperature is about \rm 20^{\circ}C. If you were to take an "empty" sealed 2-liter soda bottle at room temperature and place it in the fridge, would you expect it to contract to one-fourth its original volume?

No, because there is no gas inside the bottle.
No, because Celsius is not an absolute temperature scale.
Correct
