Natural frequency of a spring mass system does npt depend on "g" so it will be same in both earth and moon, because

 

natural frequency of spring mass system = Sqrt [k/m]

as both elastic constant "k" and mass "m" doesn't depend on gravity (Newton's Gravity) so it does not matter where the spring mass system is, the frequency will be same.

 

The answer is (A) wn
