Everyone knows that water comes in three primary forms. It could be a liquid, solid, or gas depending on the temperature. If the temperature is freezing, the water turns to a solid, which is ice. If the temperature is average, then the water is a liquid, which is what we think water is.

If the temperature is warm, then the water may turn to a gas which is steam. Certain temperatures cause the water to turn to these different forms. For freezing, the water will freeze at zero degrees Celsius or lower. In that case, the statement that would be true to support the freezing of liquid water at zero degrees Celsius would be that H is negative, S is negative, and G is negative.
