    first of all, what is the question?

    what does the lone caret (^) symbolize?

    is this the entire question as written, or have you left out other info/details?

    .If that's all which is mentioned than

    maximum r occurs at sin(2^) = 1 because its the maximum value of sine function

    minimum r occurs at sin(2^) = -1 because its the minimum value of sine function
