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 $$6~\text{m}$$
