A transverse wave moves from a medium \(A\) to a medium \(B\). In medium \(A\), the velocity of the transverse wave is \(500~\text{ms}^{-1}\) and the wavelength is \(5~\text{m}\). The frequency and the wavelength of the wave in medium \(B\) when its velocity is \(600~\text{ms}^{-1}\), respectively are:

1. \(120~\text{Hz}\) and \(5~\text{m}\) 2. \(100~\text{Hz}\) and \(5~\text{m}\)
3. \(120~\text{Hz}\) and \(5~\text{m}\) 4. \(100~\text{Hz}\) and \(6~\text{m}\)
