closed system. help !

I'm very new here, please forgive me for bringing what i hope is a begginers question to an advanced thermo forum, but i've asked in several other places and not found a sensible answer

In a given closed system ( ie heat and work can cross the system boundary, mass cannot ) a process occurs such that

delta U=0 (no change in internal energy)
delta H=0 (no change in enthalpy)
delta W=0 (no work crosses the system boundary )
Q is positive (heat enters the system )

Is this possible ?
i believe it is not, but if i am wrong, what sort of process might it be

Moved to Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics forum.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

See the forum rules here.

You can work in this problem using the entropy definition. The second law requires that
entropy production be positive or zero. By contrast, the change in entropy of the system may be positive, negative, or zero.
