  a) Seen  because speed of light is 3,00,000 km / per sec. So the explosion on the moon will be seen first.

 exlosion must see first and sound is heard later because the speed of light is more than sound

 It can be seen depending on the size of explosion but not heard as space is vacuum and sound needs a medium to travel.
