## Try with Hints

First hint

What is the form of the limit? Can you convert it to some known limit?

$$\infty^0$$
$$\frac{\infty}{\infty}$$
L’Hospital Rule

Second Hint

Let , $$\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty}(\log x)^{1 / x}$$ =l (say) then taking log on both sides we get , $$\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ log( logx) }{x}$$ =log (l) . Now we will apply L’hospital rule .

Final Step

Applying L’hospital rule we get , log (l)= $$\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{1}{logx x}$$= 0 $$\Rightarrow l=e^0 \Rightarrow l=1$$

Hence , option (C) is correct .
