usually the more complex molecule is the one with a greater entropy because there's more bonds and therefore more vibrational energy states.
for a, HBr will have the greater entropy because it is the larger molecule.
for b, NH3 would have the greater entropy because it is more complex
for c, the liquid would have a higher entropy than the solid because there is more disorder

Hope this helps!
