Solution

The correct option is A Wavelength
Compressions in a sound wave are points where the pressure is the maximum. Rarefractions in a sound wave are points where the pressure is the minimum.
Distance between two successive compressions (or rarefactions) is equal to the wavelength of a sound wave.
