Question:

In an electromagnetic wave, as the frequency of the wave becomes greater, what becomes shorter?

A The wavelength
explanation

In wave physics, l = v/f, where l is the wavelength and f is the frequency. As a result, as frequency increases, the wavelength must decrease if the velocity stays the same (which it does, because velocity is an independent property in this equation).
