Question 29 The value of 𝑏 for which the function 𝑓(π‘₯) = π‘₯ + π‘π‘œπ‘  π‘₯ + 𝑏 is strictly decreasing over R is: (a) 𝑏 < 1 (b) No value of b exists (c) 𝑏 ≀ 1 (d) 𝑏 β‰₯ 1 Given 𝑓(π‘₯) = π‘₯ + π‘π‘œπ‘  π‘₯ + 𝑏 Now, 𝑓’(π‘₯) = 1 βˆ’ sin x Since 𝑓(π‘₯) is strictly decreasing over R 𝑓’(π‘₯) < 0 1 βˆ’ sin x < 0 1 < sin x sin x > 1 Since βˆ’1 ≀ sin x ≀ 1 Thus, sin x > 1 is not possible Thus, for no value of b, 𝑓(π‘₯) is strictly decreasing So, the correct answer is (B)
