You should be able to figure this problem out by knowing the general order of wavelengths, or checking a chart with the frequencies. Higher frequencies, or shorter wavelengths, correspond to higher energies, and vice versa. So, by checking a chart in the book with the frequencies of different forms of light, you can tell which energy is highest and lowest, and all in between.
Following the EM spectrum, the photons would be ordered microwaves, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-rays, gamma rays from lowest to highest energy. This is because microwaves has the lowest frequency/longest wavelengths, which corresponds to lower energy. The higher the frequency/shorter the wavelengths, the higher the energy.
