As we learnt in

Kinetic energy in S.H.M. -

K.E.= \frac{1}{2}mu^{2}\\ \: \: \: = \frac{1}{2}m\left ( A^{2} -x^{2}\right )\omega ^{2}

 

- wherein

K.E.= \frac{1}{2}K\left ( A^{2}-x^{2} \right ) \\K= m\omega ^{2}

 

 

Potential energy in S.H.M. -

P.E.= \frac{1}{2}Kx^{2}

 

- wherein

Where K= m\omega ^{2}

 

 

Hence, K.E. maximum and P.E. is minimum at mean position.

Correct option is 3.
