Dear Pallavi,

We can solve this problem graphically. Now consider the graph as shown in the figure this would be the same for the other case too with a phse shift.

Now for one of the displacement would be half of its amplitude twice in a possitive cycle i.e. from 0 to ∏. The two pionts are  when pase term ωt is ∏/6 and 5∏/6. So for the two objects under given conditions .i.e one is going in the direction of its amplitude increase(0 to ∏/2) and the other is in the direction of its amplitude decrease i.e. from ∏/2 to ∏.

So the minimum phase difference is 5∏/6 - ∏/6 = 2∏/3

this phase difference may be even multiples of ∏.
