The correct option is D

Sound


Longitudinal waves are those waves in which the particles vibrate along the direction of propagation of the wave. Sound wave is an example for longitudinal wave.
A transverse wave is a moving wave that consists of oscillations occurring perpendicular to the direction of energy transfer. Visible light, microwaves and radio waves are examples of transverse wave.
