    This is a question from ADA sample practice test

    Q. As far as their products are concerned,
    all biosynthetic reactions in living cells
    result in,

    A. a more ordered state, therefore a
    decrease in entropy.

    B. a more ordered state, therefore an
    increase in entropy.

    C. energy released in the form of ATP.

    D. energy made available for motion.

    E. a more ordered state with no
    entropy change.

    Can somebody explain why the answer is A...? Isn't carbohydrate breaking down into smaller molecules in biosynthetic reactions...? Thank you for your time guys!!!!
