1. Xray - X-rays have a wavelength in the range of 0.01 to 10 nanometers.

2. Microwave - Microwaves are radio waves with wavelengths ranging from as long as one meter to as short as one millimeter.
3. Infrared - Infrared (IR) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength longer than that of visible light, measured from the nominal edge of visible red light at 0.74 micrometres (µm), and extending conventionally to 300 µm.
4. UV - Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light, but longer than X-rays, in the range 10 nm to 400 nm,
5. Visible Light - The visible spectrum is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to (can be detected by) the human eye. Electromagnetic radiation in this range of wavelengths is called visible light or simply light. A typical human eye will respond to wavelengths from about 390 to 750 nm

EQUINOX -
None of your answers are correct:
An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth's equator. The term equinox can also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens. The name "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, the night and day have approximately equal length.

Nahh,, Shortest "wave length",, is the one done by Her Majesty, The Queen, as she gets driven past!! ;-D "
