    Help with a Trig Identity Problem

    If we establish an identity, sinAcscA - sin2A could equal which of the following quantities?

    1
    cos^(2) x A
    sin^(2) x A – 1
    tan^(2) x A

    thanks

    sin(A)csc(A) - sin^2(A)<-- I had to be a bit of an oracle here!

    = \frac{sin(A)}{sin(A)} - sin^2(A)

    = 1 - sin^2(A) = cos^2(A)
