We’re being asked to determine which transition results in the emission of light with the longest wavelength. Recall that starting from n = 1, the distance between each energy level gets smaller as shown below:

Emission is a transition process from a higher energy level to a lower energy level

We can see that energy and frequency are directly proportional. The energy in a transition also depends on the distance between the energy levels.
