    isn't the photon energy formula

    E = hf = hc/λ

    in the data and formula book?

    you can do a quick elimination of some answers if you can remember that high frequency (short wavelength) photons carry more energy than low frequency (long wavelength) photons

    A) hc/f would require energy to be lower for high frequency photons
    D) hλ/c would require energy to be lower for short wavelength (high frequency) photons
