definitely lower frequency, wavelength wise ummmm longer, wavelength is frequency over time or something, so i guess the answer should be about wavelength so the answer is C

i think the answer is c The energy transferred by waves is proportional to the frequency. Since X-rays have higher frequencies than microwaves, they carry more energy. This is really the only difference between them.
