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.
