One end of a long metallic wire of length L is tied to the ceiling. The other end is tied to massless spring of spring constant K. A mass m hangs freely from the free end of the spring. The area of cross-section and Young's modulus of the wire are A and Y respectively. If the mass is slightly pulled down and released, it will oscillate with a time period T equal to

(a)    $2\mathrm{\pi }\left(\frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{K}}\right)$                   (b)     $2\mathrm{\pi }{\left\{\frac{\left(\mathrm{YA}+\mathrm{KL}\right)\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{YAK}}\right\}}^{1/2}$

(c)    $2\mathrm{\pi }\frac{\mathrm{mYA}}{\mathrm{KL}}$                (d)      $2\mathrm{\pi }\frac{\mathrm{mL}}{\mathrm{YA}}$
