#### Explanation:

Here,you will have to consider that the bob of the pendulum is a point mass,because its radius is not given.

so,the given situation comes out to be that a mass of

if,the radius of the bob was given as

so,distance between the centre of the bob and the pivoted point would become

hence,w.r.t the pivoted point moment of inertia would have been
