Ans 2: (Master Answer)

Class : Class 1

The correct answer is D

In transverse wave, vibration of a wave is perpendicular to its direction of propagation of wave.

Ans 3:

Class : Class 9
The correct answer is D. In a transverse wave the direction of the movement of the particle is perpendicular to direction of motion of the wave. So, over here, when we move the end Q from left and right , it will produce a transverse wave,. You can check it by observing it from the top.
