Answer

It would correspond to a greater change of energy.

Work Step by Step

For photons, E = hf, where E is the energy, h is Planck's constant, and f is the photon's vibrational frequency. A higher-frequency blue photon has more energy than a green photon. The blue photon is emitted by an electron undergoing a larger energy change. This is discussed on page 564.
