Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0frequency is basically how many cycles per second the wavelength performs. So with music when you play a middle A, for example, it might have 440 cycles per second, and when you play an octave above it, the frequency (cycles per second of the wave) increases by a factor of 2, to 880 cps. This shortens the wavelength, because the cycles are more frequent. So your answer would be (c). Some more cool things to look at are: amplitude and tambre.
