C. Gamma rays have more energy than infrared rays. 

Energy = (Planks constant (h) × speed(c))/wavelength

Gamma rays have the highest frequency and shortest wavelength and hence most energy. Compared to this, infrared rays have smaller frequency and a longer wavelength, thus less energy than gamma rays
