Arrange the kinds of light listed below in order of increasing wavelength: Red visible light, blue visible light, infrared light, and X-rays

X-ray < blue visible < red visible < infrared

infrared < red visible < blue visible < X-ray

blue visible < red visible < X-ray < infrared

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The increasing order of wavelength of light is to be predicted.

Concept Introduction:

The distance between two identical crests or two identical troughs of a wave is called wavelength.

Red visible light, blue visible light, infrared light and x-rays all are electromagnetic rays or waves.

Explanation of Solution

Reasons for the correct option:

The wavelength of infrared rays is higher than those of red visible light, blue visible light, and x-rays.

The wavelength of red visible light is more than the wavelength of blue visible light.

The wavelength of x-rays is minimum among red visible light, blue visible light, and x-rays.

Therefore, the correct order of increasing wavelength is as follows: x-ray < blue visible < red visible < infrared.

Hence, option (a) is the correct answer...
