The answer is: c. this is the increase of the speed.The sound waves travel faster in more dense material, and the more dense the material, the louder the sound. The sound travels about fifteen times faster through the metal of the railway track than through air. The speed of sound is faster in solid materials and slower in liquids or gases. The more dense the material, the closer are the molecules among themselves and with the lesser is the time required for the molecules to pass the sound to each other and the sound is faster .
