Try this problem from I.S.I. B.Stat Entrance Objective Problem based on Derivative of Function.

Derivative of Function Problem (B.Stat Objective Question )


Consider the function \(f(x)=|sin(x)|+|cos(x)|\) defined for x in the interval \((0,{2\pi})\)

  • f(x) is differentiable everywhere
  • f(x) is not differentiable at x=\(\frac{\pi}{2}\), \({\pi}\) and \(\frac{3\pi}{2}\) and differentiable everywhere else.
  • f(x) is not differentiable at x=\(\frac{\pi}{2}\) and \(\frac{3\pi}{2}\) and differentiable everywhere else
  • none of the foregoing statements is true.
