Solution

The correct option is D When $$\Delta H $$ is positive and $$\Delta S $$ is negative
Adsorption takes place only when $$\Delta G <0$$ i.e. $$\Delta H- T \Delta S <0$$.
So, if $$\Delta H$$ is positive and $$\Delta S$$ is negative then $$\Delta H- T \Delta S$$ will always be positive. So adsorption will not take place.
