# Reversible and irreversible cyclic processes

The answer in Arihant's book is given as (b), but wouldn't (c) be correct as well? This is a question of IIT JAM Chemistry.

A system undergoes two cyclic processes 1 and 2. Process 1 is reversible and Process 2 is irreversible. The correct statement relating to the two processes is
(a) $$\delta S=0$$ for Process 1, while $$\Delta S\neq0$$ for Process 2
(b) $$Q_\text{cyclic}=0$$ for Process 1 and $$Q_\text{cyclic}\neq0$$ for Process 2
(c) More heat can be converted to work in Process 1 than in Process 2
(d) More work can be converted to heat in Process 1 than in Process 2
