Choice B.

#### Work Step by Step

The relation between frequency, spring constant, and mass is given by equation 11-6b, $f = \frac{1}{2 \pi}\sqrt{\frac{k}{m}}$. Evidently, the frequency can be increased by increasing k or decreasing m. The frequency of oscillation is independent of the amplitude of oscillation.
