greater penetration power ? longitudinal or shear wave

if i have two type of sound mode one is longitudinal and other is shear wave, and frequency is same, so my question is which ever is greater penetration power ? longitudinal of shear wave. and also my answer is both. but if the answer is not both , then send me the wright answer , its urgent

Longitudinal Sound has approximately twice the velocity on Shear Waves. As a result the longitudinal wavelengths are twice as long as shear waves. This results in less scatter and deeper penetration of longitudinal waves when compared to shear waves.
