Answer : (a) $\;\sqrt{\large\frac{3g}{2L}}$
Explanation :
As it is displaced by small angle $\;\theta$
Taking torque about O
$mgsin \theta\times \large\frac{L}{2}=I \alpha$
$mgsin \theta\times \large\frac{L}{2}=\large\frac{mL^3}{3} \alpha \quad $ for small values of $\;\theta \; sin \theta \approx \theta$
$mg \theta \times \large\frac{L}{2}=\large\frac{L}{3}\times \alpha$
