(i)

A CREST is the point on a wave with the maximum value or upward displacement within a cycle . A CREST is a point on the wave where the displacement of the medium is at a maximum. A TROUGH is the opposite of a crest, so the minimum or lowest point in a cycle. A point on the wave is a TROUGH if the displacement of the medium at that point is at a minimum .
