Answer

System A : 1 energetically equivalent state System B : 6 energetically equivalent states System B has the greater entropy

Work Step by Step

System A has only 1 energetically equivalent state System B has 6 energetically equivalent states (arrangement of 3 particles in 3 states - 3! = 6 ways) So, System B has the greater entropy
