I am getting confused regarding what a 'period' in a pendulum is.

In a recent Olympiad/Exam I was given this question.....

Can you please give me the method in which it can be done

so that I can solve these type of questions with ease if they

appear in future.....

Thanks

From my point of view the answer should be 1.6 seconds.....

that's what I wrote as an answer but i'm not very

sure so I just want to confirm....

Thanks a Lot!

**A Pendulum oscillates between positions L and R as shown in the figure. It takes 1.2 s to go from L to R and back to the mean position S what is the PERIOD of the pendulum?**From my point of view the answer should be 1.6 seconds.....
