Default cardiovascular physiology

A 52-year-old male presents to your office with a two week history of shortness of breath. He has noticed decreased exercise tolerance that limits his daily activities. He also complains of a dry cough. A Doppler probe placed at the cardiac apex reveals the following blood flow pattern across this patient's mitral valve (see the slide below).
The point marked by the arrow best corresponds to which of the following?
A. First heart sound
B. Second heart sound
C. Third heart sound
D. Fourth heart sound
E. Mid-systolic click

Could someone tell me why there is a second small wave??
