    D. transverse waves move perpendicular and longitudinal waves move parallel to the direction of energy movement

    Explanation:

    Transverse wave : It is defined as the wave in which the the vibration of the particles of the medium through which the wave travel is perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave. Example : electromagnetic wave

    Longitudinal wave : It is defined as the wave in which the the vibration of the particles of the medium through which the wave travel is parallel to the direction of motion of the wave. example : Sound wave
