    Answer:

    C. Waves do not transmit matter.

    Explanation:

    A wave is a disturbance that transmits energy from one point to another.

    Waves are simply means of transferring energy form places to places without moving the materials of the medium.

    The particles of wave are not simply transported from one part to another, in water waves only the energy moves.

    It will be a wrong assertion to claim that water waves transmits particles from one place to another round the world.
