    Why do you want us to give you detailed solutions to them? Have you attempted them yourself? Can you show us some of your working?

    If you want to learn how to solve them or you are stuck at solving them, that's fine, we'll help you. We'll help you in understanding it or get past whatever you are stuck on.
    But we cannot just give you full detailed solutions for whatever other reason you might have, and that includes homework.

    Hello, lutesium!

    \displaystyle \text{Evaluate: }\;S \;=\;\sum^n_{k=1}\ln\left(1 + \frac{1}{k}\right)

    \displaystyle S \;=\;\ln\left(1 + \frac{1}{1}\right) + \ln\left(1 + \frac{1}{2}\right) + \ln\left(1 + \frac{1}{3}\right) + \ln\left(1 + \frac{1}{4}\right) + \hdots + \ln\left(1 + \frac{1}{n}\right)

    . . \displaystyle =\;\ln(2) + \ln\left(\frac{3}{2}\right) + \ln\left(\frac{4}{3}\right) + \ln\left(\frac{5}{4}\right) + \hdots + \ln\left(\frac{n+1}{n}\right)

    . . \displaystyle =\;\ln\left(2\cdot\frac{3}{2}\cdot\frac{4}{3}\cdot  \frac{5}{4}\:\cdots\;\frac{n+1}{n}\right)

    . . \displaystyle =\;\ln\left(\frac{\rlap{/}2}{1}\cdot\frac{\rlap{/}3}{\rlap{/}2}\cdot\frac{\rlap{/}4}{\rlap{/}3}\cdot\frac{\rlap{/}5}{\rlap{/}4}\:\cdots\;\frac{n+1}{\rlap{/}n}\right)

    . . =\;\ln(n+1)

    e^{-x} + 1 = 0

    e^{-x} = -1

    -x = \log{(-1)}

    -x = \ln{|-1|} + i\arg{(-1)}

    -x = \ln{1} + i\pi

    -x = 0 + i\pi

    -x = i\pi

    x = -i\pi.
