Solution

The correct option is C both (a) and (b)
Propagation of waves depends on the medium through which they propagate. Transverse wave need a medium rigid enough which neither liquid nor gas can provide and hence transverse wave can travel through metals. For longitudinal wave they just require a medium for propagation. Hence transverse and longitudinal wave can both propagate in metals.
