Higher entropy means an increase in disorder.

To go off of the idea that higher entropy means higher disorder, that means that gas has high entropy because it has many microstate while solids have the lowest entropy because it has the fewest microstates.

A high value of entropy means that there is a lot of disorder in the environment. For example, gases have a higher entropy than solids as there is increased disorder in the positions, or micro states, gases exist in. Another example is when a reaction occurs and the number of moles of substance increases; this means entropy has increased.

High Entropy means high disorder and low energy.

Entropy is a measure of disorder/randomness. A high entropy shows an increase in disorder (low energy), which is determined by the number of microstates of the given state of matter.

higher entropy means a higher disorder, which means gas is high. This also means low energy.
