Solution

The correct option is C radio and television

The communication and broadcasting following the base on generation, propagation, and detection of electromagnetic waves.

The electromagnetic spectrum describes a different range of electromagnetic waves. These EM waves are a special type of wave that can travel without a medium.

Electromagnetic waves are named like this due to the fact that they have both an electric and a magnetic component. In a vacuum, EM waves always travel at the same speed i.e. the speed of light. So, other EM waves besides light are infrared, ultraviolet, radio waves, and microwaves. Therefore radio and television both are based on EM wave properties. Other options like lasers, reactors, and computers are not guided by EM waves.

Thus the correct option is C.
