Solution

## The correct option is C amplitudeThe maximum displacement of a particle from its mean position is called its amplitude. Here, as the mean position of the pendulum is B, and the maximum displacement of the pendulum on left side is C and right side is A. Therefore, the displacement of pendulum from B to A, or from B to C, is its amplitude.
