Identify the correct definition:

1. If after every certain interval of time, a particle repeats its motion, then the motion is called periodic motion.
2. To and fro motion of a particle is called oscillatory motion.
3. Oscillatory motion described in terms of single sine and cosine functions is called simple harmonic motion.
4. All of the above
