Sonar is a device that uses sound wave propagation to determine ocean depth and also an object at the ocean floor.
Sonar emits sound waves in the direction of the ocean bottom and measures the reflected echo. By continuously monitoring the echo and making the profile of the ocean, the depth of the ocean can be determined.
Result:
B. Sonar

What is a pitch (in sound)?
It is related to the frequency i.e. if more frequency more pitch and vice versa.
So when we talk, if we speak speedily then more frequency but if we speak slowly then low frequency? right or wrong? then how do we know that his voice has high frequency (or pitch) than the other?
