Expert Answer:

Intermolecular forces: The forces holding particles together are generally called intermolecular force. Intermolecular forces are forces of attraction or repulsion which act between neighboring atoms, molecules or ions.

Example: Hydrogen bonding between two molecules.

Elementary particle:  An elementary particle is a one which cannot be subdivided into further constituents. It is the most fundamental in nature of its type and is also called a fundamental particle. So, they are not composed of other smaller particles. These particles exist as single entity.

Examples: Quarks.
