sampling rate=200KHz signal freq =1KHz When I sample 1KHz signal I'll get 200 samples.

Should I consider 0 to 199 samples? Or 1 to 200? I want only 1 cycle.

Both give you a cycle, just at a different starting point; but the thing about periodicity is that its periodic, regardless of the starting point.

So, there's no wrong answer here.

    $\begingroup$ a complete cycle is 200, not 201 samples. $\endgroup$ Sep 4 at 16:11

    $\begingroup$ That understanding is correct. If you take a piece of paper and draw a sine on it with equidistant sampling points, you'll see as much. $\endgroup$ Sep 4 at 16:18
