Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is D... In this context transverse means means perpendicular to the direction of travel. So it is neither A or C. Also, just because the wave has a constant direction of motion (propagating to the right for instance at a constant speed) does not mean it has to be a longitudinal wave. Electromagnetic waves are examples of transverse waves which can propagate in a single direction unimpeded. So that rules out B.
