comment How to sell a worthless option
If the option is going to expire worthless, then it must be significantly underwater. You would lose a lot more than the liquidity risk by exercising it - you'll lose the difference between the strike and the current stock price.

comment Does a market maker sell (buy) at a bid or ask price?
This is wrong, market makers are the opposite party to you so the prices are the other way around for them. In exchange for making profit on this (the "spread") they take on the risk of being left with inventory when the market moves against them.
