  1. I don't like any of the answers to #1 because long and high are relative terms. I know what a radio wave is but there are long radio waves and short radio waves. There are low frequencies and ultra high frequencies. Remember that c = 3E8 m/s (a constant) = wavelength x frequency. So when wavelength is a large number frequency must be a small number and when wavelength is a small number frequency is a large number. I think B fits but why not D also?
    I think your answer to #2 is ok.
