Nonspontanous reactions that occur as a result of heating are:
A. Endothermic and more random
B. Endothermic and less random
C. Exothermic and more random
D. Exothermic and less random


Answer key says D is correct but i don't get why it's D and not B

Why do you think it's B? Tell us your reasoning.

It turns out that the question is translated incorrectly the question should have been " which of the following becomes nonspontanous when heated"
The reason i thought it should have been B was because B is non spontaneous but the heating works in favor of endothermic, while For D it's nonspontanous at higher temperature and it's exothermic which the heating part works against
Anyways it doesn't matter since the question is incorrectly translated
