Time : Three hours

Full Marks : 100


(50 marks for each part)

Use a separate Answer-Script for each part.


PART-I
Answer any five questions.
1.

a)

Write the meaning (using -) of

f(x) l where

f is a real valued function of real variable, l is a finite


real number and a is such a finite real number that
every

interval

containing

contains

points of the domain of f.


b)

a)

many

Discuss the continuity of the function


f (x)

2.

infinitely

=1

when x is rational

=0

when x is irrational

F (x) is called a primitive of f(x) if F(x) = f (x) prove that


any two primitives of a given function differ by a
constant.

b)

Use Rolles theorem to show that


f(x) = x3 + ax + b ( a > 0)
has precisely one real root.

3.

function

and

f(a1) = f(a2) = f(a3) ( a1< a2 < a3 ). Prove that f" (c) = 0


for some c ( a1 , a3 ) .

b) Use Leibnitzs formula to find the sixth derivative of


x3 sin x.
4.

a)

State L Hospitals Rule.


The limit of log e x as x 0 + is found to be (using L Hospitals
x

Rule)

lim x = +
x 0 + 1

but the actual limit is - . What is wrong with the

above argument? 5

Find the Taylors series of sin x at

b) Given an example of a function f (x) whose Maclaurins


series does not converge to f (x) anywhere except at
x = 0.
