Which one of these statements regarding standing waves on a string is FALSE

Select one:
a. The frequency of the first harmonic depends on the tension in the string
b. The frequency of the first harmonic depends on the speed of the wave
c. The frequency does not depend on the length of the string
d. The frequency of the first harmonic depends on the mass per unit length of the string

I am just plain not going to answer this. Look up what determines the frequency.
