T =2pi(L/g)1/2

time period is independent of mass of bob so it should not vary when the water leaks..

Dear Varsha,

 

Yes u are correct T increases first because centre of mass of hollow sphere ( with water ) is in the centre of the sphere but as the water leaks from it the centre of mass shifts downwards and hence T starts decreasing.
