Work Step by Step

1) The higher the distance between the peak and bottom of the curve, the higher the amplitude. Thus, the answer is upper. 2) The lower has a greater wavelength, for there is a larger distance between peaks. 3) The lower one also has a lower period, for it takes longer to complete one wave. 4) There are more waves in the upper one, so it has a higher wave number. 5) Because the lower one has the longer period, the upper one must have the higher frequency.
