During a spontaneous chemical reaction, it is found that δSsys < 0. This means __________
a. δSsurr < 0 and its magnitude is < δSsys.
b. δSsurr < 0 and its magnitude is > δSsys.
c. δSsurr > 0 and its magnitude is < δSsys.
d. δSsurr > 0 and its magnitude is > δSsys.
e. an error has been made, as Ssys > 0 by necessity for a spontaneous process.
