Q.

Sound waves can travel through all three states of matter. Which of the following best explains why sound travels most quickly through a solid?

Solids always produce an echo, which makes the sound seem louder to the human ear.

Only solids allow the vibrations to travel from one atom (particle) to another.

In solids, the atoms (particles) are closest together, which allows the vibrations to travel rapidly from one to another through the object.

Sound does not travel quickly through a solid. It travels most rapidly through a gas.
