Is rotation of earth oscilatory motion? If yes then how.explain?

A principle characteristic of SHM is a restoring force proportional to the distance from equilibrium.
Rotation of the Earth does not qualify based on this definition.

In a broad sense both circular and elliptical motion are a more general form of SHM. In other words what you think of as oscillatory is merely a one dimensional component of 2 dimensional rotation. All the formulae are completely compatible because they represent the same situation.
