X-rays and γ-rays travel faster in water than any other electromagntic wave. X-rays and γ-rays have higher frequencies .
Typical frequency of x-ray 1018 Hz . Typical frequency of γ-ray is 1021 Hz .
Hence x-ray and γ-ray photons have very high energy and travels faster than other types of electromagnetic waves
