Solution

The correct option is B Amplitude
Amplitude is the maximum displacement of the particles from mean position. Loudness of sound is proportional to the square of its amplitude. Thus, the loudness of sound increases with the increase in its amplitude and decreases with the decrease in its amplitude.
