Answer : (c) $\;3.88\;sec\;per\;day$
Explanation :
$T=2 \pi \sqrt{\large\frac{l_{0}}{g}}=2 \pi \sqrt{\large\frac{l_{0}(1+\alpha \bigtriangleup \theta)}{g}}=2 \pi \sqrt{\large\frac{l_{0}}{g}}\;(1+\large\frac{\alpha \bigtriangleup \theta}{2})$
$T=T_{0}\;(1+\large\frac{\alpha}{2} \bigtriangleup \theta)$
$\large\frac{\bigtriangleup T}{T_{0}}=\large\frac{\alpha}{2} \bigtriangleup \theta$
$=\large\frac{10^{-5}}{2}\times9=4.5 \times 10^{-5}$
