cis and trans molecules

Why do cis molecules have a higher molar entropy than trans molecules?

In chapter 9 #75, the molecule cis-MX2Y4 has a higher molar entropy than trans-MX2Y4.

In this post, viewtopic.php?t=27499, it says trans configured molecules have fewer packing positions compared to that of cis, so cis would have more entropy.
