Answer :

An organ pipe open at both ends contains sound waves which are longitudinal waves, so the option C and D are not true. When the waves enter through one end it gets reflected from the other end with a phase change of π. The reflected wave is again reflected by the first end. With repeated reflections, if the length of the pipe is a multiple of the half wavelength, stationary waves are formed. Thus option A is correct.
