Light and Color - Mission LC1 Detailed Help

Consider the visible light spectrum. Of the following listed regions of the spectrum, which consists of waves with the HIGHEST frequency? (or the lowest frequency?)

Visible Light Spectrum:
Of the enormous range of frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, our eyes are sensitive to only a very narrow range. This narrow range of frequencies is referred to as the visible light spectrum. Each frequency within this range of frequencies is associated with a unique color of light. The range of colors and their ordering is often remembered by the mnemonic ROYGBIV (red - orange - yellow - green - blue - indigo - violet).

If you are not familiar with the visible light spectrum and the arrangement of regions in order of their frequency and wavelength, then click the link in the Hot Link! section. A graphical display of the spectrum will appear. The answer to this question will be quickly found.
