Midterm 2014 Q5B

This question reads:
"Which has a higher molar entropy value at 25 degrees Celsius: benzene or hexane?"

Is the answer hexane because it has single bonds and can rotate (giving it more orientations), while benzene is basically "stuck" in its ring shape?

The 3D strcuture in hexane increases the randomness of the system
