    Answer:

    E. 20 m/s^2

    Explanation:

    The period of a pendulum is given by the following equation:

    T = 2 * pi * \sqrt{\frac{L}{g} }

    Where T = time period (in seconds)

    L = length of pendulum

    and g = acceleration due to gravity

    Substituting the values from the question we get:

    2 = 2 * pi *\sqrt{\frac{2}{g} }

    Solving for g, we get:

    g = 19.74 m/s^2

    Closest option to this is option (E).
