Correct Answer - Option 2 : π

Concept:

For a trigonometric function, the length of one complete cycle is called a period.

In general, we have three basic trigonometric functions like sin, cos, and tan functions, having 2π, 2π, and π periods respectively.

• If a function f(x) is periodic with T , then the function f(ax + b) is periodic with $\rm \frac{T}{|a|}$

Calculation:

Given function:f(x) = 2sin x cos x = sin 2x

The period of sin function is 2π.

We know, If a function f(x) is periodic with T , then the function f(ax + b) is periodic with $\rm \frac{T}{|a|}$

∴ The period of sin 2x will be  $\rm \frac{2π }{2}$ = π
