To determine

Pick the keyword from the given list: The physical quantity which decreases in an isolated system.

### Explanation of Solution

The entropy is defined as the degree of randomness. The change in entropy tells whether the process can take place naturally or not.

When heat is added to the system, the entropy of a system increases due to the disordered motion of the molecule. When the natural process takes place, the randomness of a system increases...
