To get this straight, the equation is \[-10p ^{2q} + 7p ^{3q} - 5q\]

Descending order means 3...2...1, and in order to put it in descending order you look at the exponents. So with that information, solve that..

"A series is often represented as the sum of a sequence of terms. Individual factors in an expression representing a product are multiplicative terms. For example, in 6 + 3x − 2, 6, 3x, and −2 are all terms." So looking at your equation, how many terms are there?

would it be classified as a trinomial

It can be yes. The definition of a polynomial though is an equation with more than two terms. Since this has three terms (oops I kind of just gave you one of the answers there lol) it is considered a polynomial - as well as a trinomial. The degree of the polynomial is the highest degree (or exponent) in the equation. So since you put the equation in descending order, what is the degree of the polynomial?

the degree would end up being 3

Correct! So now you have the answers to a) the descending order b) the number of terms and c) the degree! :)
