A weight is connected to a spring that is suspended vertically from the ceiling.

A weight is connected to a spring that is suspended vertically from the ceiling.If the weight is displaced downword from its equilibrium position and released,it will oscillate up and down.How many forms of potential energy are involved? if air resistance and friction are disregarde, will the total mechanical energy be conserved? (Explain)

Yes, if all other forms of energy dissipation are removed then by definition the conservation of energy in the only form that is not being ignored will remain.

With regard to potential energy, it depends on your definition.
