What is an adiabatic system and how does it relate to entropy?

The general concept of it is that a reaction is occurring without the system losing any heat so you know that the change in internal energy is just to the "work" on or in the system so you would use (delta)U=W instead of (delta)U= Q + W. As for how to know that the system is adiabatic you just have to look at the information provided, if it says the system isn't losing or gaining heat then you can assume its adiabatic.
