What is "c" here?

Here a is wider band& b is narrow band means a=15,b=10.
So,f=3*10^8 m/2*15 cm,

Dominant mode is TE10 only when dimensions are a>b but here in the question he gave a<b so dominant mode will be TE01 so Cut-off frequency is C/(2b).

Yes, answer should be 1.5 GHz.

I agree with your answer.

For Dominant mode TE10.
Cutoff frequency f = c/2a.
Put all the value and we get our answer.

Please explain clearly. I can't understand.

Answer will be 1.5 GHz.

For TE mode we will consider a = 10 cm and f= (3*10^10) / (2*a (cm)).

In general dimensions of rectangle are represented as l:b. So a = 10cm, but here they have considered a = 15cm. Can any one help me to understand this?
