The above is a schematic diagram of the energy levels of a hydrogen atom, where \(\lambda_1\) and \(\lambda_2\) are the wavelengths of the electromagnetic waves released when the electron transition from \(n=4\) to \(n=3,\) or from \(n=4\) to \(n=1,\) occurs. Which of the following statements is correct?

a) The wavelength \(\lambda_1\) is longer than the wavelength \(\lambda_2\).

b) The electromagnetic wave released when the electron transition from \(n=4\) to \(n=3\) occurs is a visible light.

c) The electron at \(n=4\) releases more energy when it transits to \(n=3\) than when it transits to \(n=1\).
