Dear student,

Elasticity and area of cross section are required to find the deflection only due to weight.

let x be the initial deflection,

force due to pendulum is maximum when it is at mean position 

=> velocity at mean position is = [2g*l(1-cos(theta)]^1/2

force at mean position = mv^2/l

=> 9*g/1 = 90N

so maximum deflection will be 2x.
