The answer to this is D. Some people are still confused about the relation of frequency to wavelength. Basically, these two are interconnected. The lower the frequency, the longer the wavelength is going to be. A light wave can be one example when the light wave just hits one portion and it will not bend, the wavelength will be longer.

If it would need to pass through several areas, then the wavelengths that will be created are shorter. Converting the frequency to wavelength can be very important especially if you need the precise figures. Your final answer will use the unit, Hertz. You can also use Hz for short.
