Why do series of compressions and rarefactions take place?

have you seen spring/slinky?
notice it . produce jerk  at one end..then things will be clear.
this is property of any elastic medium.....if we disturb it at one place it will always try to regain its original shape and in doing so a successive compression and ratrefaction is already produced.
