How does a guitar string make a sound wave? A. Striking the string compresses the air around it to create a sound wave. B. The vibrating string alternately compresses and rarefies the air to make sound. C. The string strikes the wood of the guitar, which vibrates to make the sound. D. The string moves air through the hole in the guitar to create sound. **I am not sure :( thank you!!

    i am not very sure... i want to say it is either C or D since the wood panels and the hole make the sound more evident?

    yes! the wood panels or the wood structure is working as resonant box,nevertheless the sound is generated by the string, since it, alternatively compresses and rarefyies the surrounding air

    sorry, it is option D, since the wood structure, as I said before, works as resonant structure

    if you cover up the hole in a guitar, you still get a sound.
