Answer

(b) mechanical

Reason — Sound waves produce the sensation of hearing in our ears. They are mechanical waves that need a medium to travel, like air or water. When an object vibrates, it creates disturbances in the surrounding medium, propagating as mechanical waves. These waves carry the energy of the vibrating particles, allowing us to perceive sound.
