a) for ripples on a pond the medium is water; because the liquid in the pond is water;
b) for sound waves the medium is air because once they exit through the speakers air particles keep carrying them;
c)for earthquakes the medium is earth's crust/litosphere, because earthquakes appear as a result of any movement/contact of tectonic layers or earth's crust, and because of that resulting energy the crust begins to quake;
d) for waves on the spring the medium is the spring itself because the spring is the only available medium since the wave is defined as being on spring:
e) for ocean waves medium is water, because the ocean waves are waves of water themselves.
