Ok so here are a few multiple choice questions that I have been given to me and these are what my selected options turned out to be

Do they seem right?

I am rather confused on the wording of the first question?

Is it asking to state the conditions of SHM for it be in SHM?

I know that from the definition in my head SHM is a type of periodic motion or oscillation motion where the restoring force is directly proportional to the displacement and acts in the direction opposite to that of displacement

I know it must be option C as that matches in with the above definition I had given. Cannot be option B as it simply just says motion on a pendulum or spring but does not describe any features of SHM. But option A is describing Hooke's law and says nothing about the displacement or how acceleration is directly proportional to its displacement from equilibrium position?

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
