If the speed of wind then it applies pressure in the forward direction which leads Bernoulli's principle i.e. negative pressure created on the water surface more waves are formed and due to the same direction of wave and wind, it posses high energy.

With the high speed wind more waves and with the longer distance of open water larger waves are possible. So option A is correct I think so.

Which country is the middle of the world ?

Larger waves when travel long distances in open waters collect the moisture and become more energetic and hence develop large waves with more energy.

Larger waves when travel with high speed in open water so it collects more energy.It becomes more energetic and under the pressure of wind it becomes more powerful.

By considering oceanic wave energy in energy crisis, it depends on the height and the speed of waves ! When it comes to producing electricity, it should be a powerful thing.

Long distance winds traveled more velocity because the winds are large and more waves.

The higher the speed of water, the wild and the distance will depend the larger that will made or perform.

It is with high speed.

Option A is right.
