    Answer:

    There would be complete destructive interference.

    Explanation:

    This is because since the waves are completely out of phase, the phase difference is half wavelength, that is the phase angle is 180°. The vibrating sources are 180° out of phase with each other.

    Since this is the case, the crest of the one source meets the trough of the other, this causes the resultant vibrational wave to cancel out, thus producing a destructive interference pattern.

    Since the vibrating sources are completely out of phase, every point they meet is completely out of phase, so the resultant interference pattern would produce a complete destructive interference pattern of no wave.
