    1. Since the degree of the numerator exceeds the degree of the denominator, you should be able to tell that the limit is infinite. You can also see it by dividing the numerator and the denominator by x^4, and noting that \lim_{x\to\infty}\frac1x=0.

    2. This should be easy. If you are having trouble, state where you need help.

    3. This is a telescoping series: \sum_{n=1}^\infty\ln\left(\frac n{n+1}\right) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty\left[\ln n - \ln(n+1)\right].

    Thanx I am solving the questions right now... and I have done Q1 with your kind help

    but in Q2 I really dont know from where should I start...first I thought of continuity but when I saw we have to show F'(x)=F1'(x)=f(x) I got confused... Plz kindly help me out that from where should i start...

    and I am solving Q3 right now.. if i get any diificulty I'll write it here... Thanx...

    You can differentiate F and F_1 by differentiating each case separately. You should get f(x) as the derivative. That's it.
