Initial P.E = mgl/2 = > 0.4*10*1/2 = 2 Joules.
At 60 degree angle ,
P.E. = mgl(1-cos60)/2 = > 0.4*10*1(1-0.5)/2  => 1 Joules.
Hence the potential energy get decreased by = 2 – 1 = 1 Joue instead of increasing.

Mass of stick ,m=0.4 kg
Length of stick ,  l=1m
Initial Potential energy =2mgl=20.4×10×1=2 J
At 600 angle ,
Final Potential energy  =2mgl(1cos600)=20.4×10×1(10.5)=1 J.
So , Its potential energy decreased by 21=1 J
