I think this should be the logic.

Let f(x) = $\frac{\cos ^{m}x}{x^{n}}$

Value of x Value of n
<1 <1
<1 >=1
>=1 <1
>=1 >=1


Now, we focus for first 2 cases (i.e. x<1 since x has more values less than 1  rather than greter than 1)


Now, if we consider n>=1, then consider what will be instantaneous value of f(x).

e.g n=100 and x=0.02

$\therefore$ cosmx<1 but xn$\rightarrow$0

So, instantaneous value is very high and thus, integration of f(x) will never converge.


Now, if we consider n<1, then consider what will be instantaneous value of f(x).

e.g  n=0.9  x=0.02

$\therefore$  instantaneous value of f(x) will be finite. (just try taking an example)

So, this will converge.


So, my answer was just a calculated guess. I dont know if there is any solution by using the series expansion of cos(x).
