Homework Help: Chemistry

Consider each of the following reactions and decide whether the standard entropy change for the reaction will be, (a) Positive; or (b) Very close to Zero; or (c) Negative.

Matching pairs

N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g) = 2 NH3 (g)
Mg (s) + CO2 (g) = MgO (s) + CO (g)
C6H12O6 (s) + 6 O2 (g) = 6 CO2 (g) + 6 H2O (l)
2 NO2 (g) = N2O4 (g)
BaSO4 (s) + 2 H2O (g) = BaSO4.2H2O (s)
PCl5 (s) = PCl3 (s) + Cl2 (g)

My answers are:
very close to zero
negative ???

i am not sure of the second one ?? u see the entropy of CO is less than CO2 due to the different arrangements however it can be also close to zero what do u guys think ???
