D) Steam (equilibrium between liquid and a gas) Here is why. I will explain so you can understand it. Think of entropy as freedom to move. The more freedom, the higher the entropy. Ice (solid)cannot move right? so it has the lowest entropy of the 4. Ice water can move within the container its in. So its has more freedom than the solid ice. Steam has the freedom to move move in all directions so it has the highest entropy. "You will be laughing cry cry cry back to me"
