Gas is a fluid so we can apply pv = mrt.

Volume remains constant because it is incompressible fluid.

The question talks about effect of pressure on volume of a fluid. It will be a lot clearer if you define the fluid in question, because if it's a gas, volume decreases with increase in pressure.

On the other hand, for liquids, volume remains constant with pressure increase because they are regarded as in-compressible.

Fluids include liquid or gases.

Thus. It's true.

For liquids, volume remains constant with increase in pressure, as they are incompressible. But for gases, it decreases.

When a fluid kept in a bowl increase the pressure the fluid automatically decrease the volume.

Not specify which kind of fluid it May be decreas or remain same.
