    Confusing derivative problem :(

    Hi guys,
    Im stuck on two simple questions which look the same to me.

    1st Q is g(x) = sin(e^5x-1)

    2nd Q is y = sin(e^5x)

    When I solved it,

    the answer for Q1 was 5e^5x cos (e^5x - 1)

    Q2 was 5e^5x cos e^5x
    However, two questions seem to be all the same except for the -1 part
    is it right?
    Plz help me guys,

    Thank you.
