    I think it travels the fastest in more dense environments such as metals like Iron and such.

    Sound travels via particle-to-particle vibrations around a mean position; this means that the more particles there are, the better the sound travels. Therefore, sound travels faster through iron than through water or air. The more denser the solid, the better the sound transfer. From the choices here, looks like cast iron is the only solid and is the most dense material.

    Yes sound travels the fastest through solids so cast iron would be the answer
