Were frequency can be expressed in any amount of time. EX: the frequency of (cycles per min) equals 3600. the frequency of (cycles per second) equals 60.
    My point is the denominator when defining frequency is a variable not one second. The denominator in the unit Hz is defined as one second.
    Just read the question " The number " so in my opinion answer is 60 Hz or just 60. They dont ask you how it calls or defenition of it

    Period: – This is the length of time in seconds that the waveform takes to repeat itself from start to finish. IE (The period for 60Hz = 0.01667s or 1/60s.)

    That wasn’t an option also not what the question was asking.

    IEEE definition of frequency

    frequency (1) The number of periods, or specified fractions of periods, per unit time.

    Note the words “unit of time” not “one minute”. We have known the definition of frequency and Hz for along time.
