A body is moving in a circular path with constant speed. Is this motion a simple harmonic?

No, the motion of the body moving in a uniform circular path is not SHM rather its projection on any diameter of a circle is SHM.
The equation of this motion is given by

'y = rsinωt’, where ‘y’ is the displacement (projection) of a particle moving in uniform circular motion.
