The question is on balanced forces.
An elastic string is stretched horizontally between two fixed points 0.80m apart. An object of weight 4.0 N is suspended from the midpoint of the string, causing the midpoint to drop a distance of 0.12 m.
->Sketch a diagram to show the forces acting on the object.
->the angle of each part of the string to the vertical.
->the tension in each part of the sting.
Could someone please post the sketch!

Have you not tried it yourself? You must have some idea how to start.
I think the idea of this site is that you make an attempt first, and ask for help on the basis of that.

Hint: Start by drawing a triangle.
