Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would stretch in the horizontal direction  not the vertical direction. @Akshay Budhkar is correct in that sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@imranmeah91  there is nothing in the question to indicate that rect is a periodic function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh amplitude "if rect(t) is function between 1/2 to 1/2 " i think this lines suggests it's periodic nature

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's not rect(t) function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only information given is that its range is between 1/2 and 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unless you are saying that this is some well known function named "rect"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that still does not look periodic to me. I think all we can say is that is would stretch it horizontally
