I think there is no answer in the question because in case of under damping the amplitude of vibration varies according to sin graph.

For an under-damped system, the value of ζ can be found by examining the logarithm of the ratio of succeeding amplitudes of a system. This is called the logarithmic decrements.

Yep, I agree with @Ankit. The amplitude varies sinusoidally.

Amplitude varies as per sine graph but it decreases exponentially.
