Expert Answer:

Yes gases can change directly into solid state and the process is called as desublimation or deposition. One example of deposition is the process by which, in sub-freezing air, water vapor changes directly to ice without first becoming a liquid. This is how snow forms in clouds, as well as frost and hoar frost on the ground.
