If $f(x) = \sin \bigg( \dfrac{1}{x^2+1} \bigg),$ then

  1. $f(x)$ is continuous at $x=0$, but not differentiable at $x=0$
  2. $f(x)$ is differentiable at $x=0$, and $f’(0) \neq 0$
  3. $f(x)$ is differentiable at $x=0$, and $f’(0) = 0$
  4. None of the above

Here, $\sin\left(\frac{1}{x^{2}+1}\right)$ is continuous and definitely differentiable.

$f(x)=\sin\left(\frac{1}{x^{2}+1}\right)\\ \Rightarrow f'(x)= \frac{-2x}{\left(x^{2}+1\right)^2}\cos\left(\frac{1}{x^{2}+1}\right)\\ \Rightarrow f'(0)=0$

 

So the correct answer is C.

Here's the graph of $\sin\left(\frac{1}{x^{2}+1}\right)$ below.

Let $f: \bigg( – \dfrac{\pi}{2}, \dfrac{\pi}{2} \bigg) \to \mathbb{R}$ be a continuous function, $f(x) \to +\infty$ as $x \to \dfrac{\pi^-}{2}$ and $f(x) \to – \infty$ as $x \to -\dfrac{\pi^+}{2}$. Which one of the following functions satisfies the above properties of $f(x)$? $\cos x$ $\tan x$ $\tan^{-1} x$ $\sin x$

Let $f(x) = \dfrac{x}{(x-1)(2x+3)}$, where $x>1$. Then the $4^{th}$ derivative of $f, \: f^{(4)} (x)$ is equal to $- \frac{24}{5} \bigg[ \frac{1}{(x-1)^5} – \frac{48}{(2x+3)^5} \bigg]$ $\frac{24}{5} \bigg[ – \frac{1}{(x-1)^5} + \frac{48}{(2x-3)^5} \bigg]$ $\frac{24}{5} \bigg[ \frac{1}{(x-1)^5} + \frac{48}{(2x+3)^5} \bigg]$ $\frac{64}{5} \bigg[ \frac{1}{(x-1)^5} + \frac{48}{(2x+3)^5} \bigg]$
