Answer : decrease in free - energy of the system & enthalpy of the system both
Explanation :
As adsorption is spontaneous , $\;\bigtriangleup G\;$ for the process is -ve . Adsorption is accompanied by decrease in randomness , Therefore $\;\bigtriangleup S\;$ and $\;T \bigtriangleup S\;$ for the process is also negative . As $\;\bigtriangleup S\;$ for the process is - ve and the process is spontaneous , $\;\bigtriangleup H\;$ for the process has to be - ve i. e . enthalpy of the system decreases .
