Higher Frequency means higher energy, as can be told from the formula E=hv, where v is frequency. Because v and wavelength (λ) are inversely related in c=λ v, the larger the wavelength, the lower the frequency, and so the lower the energy.
Knowing the series may also be helpful. The Balmer series is associated with energy changes where n=2 and exists in the visible light spectrum. The Lyman series is associated with energy changes where n=1and exists in the UV spectrum. These series are for Hydrogen only.
