    Answer:

    b) empty space

    Explanation:

    A mechanical cannot travel through empty space. So option (b) is correct.

    A mechanical wave is a wave which needs a material medium for its propagation. For example sound, water waves etc . The medium required by the wave can be a solid, liquid or a gas. Empty space doesn’t have any medium, so a mechanical wave cannot travel through empty space.
