### Question

Consider a particle of mass m attached to two identical springs each of length and spring constant (see the figure below). The equilibrium configuration is the one where the springs are unstretched. There are no other external forces on the system. If the particle is given a small displacement along the x – axis, which of the following describes the equation of motion for small oscillations?
