Light waves and ripples of water are similar because both

Question

Light waves and ripples of water are similar because both

Options

A) are longitudinal waves

B) can be diffracted and refracted

C) have the same velocity

D) have the same frequency

Explanation:

I believe the right answer is B because light is the fastest moving medium and has a constant velocity of $$3 \times 10^8$$, obviously water isn't as fast as light and so C cannot be the answer.
They both are waves and exhibit diffraction and refraction and this is what makes them similar
