(a) [–∞, ∞]
(b) (–∞, ∞)
(c) (–1, 1)
(d) [–1, 1]
Correct Answer is Option (d)
The cosine function is periodic so to calculate its inverse function we need to make the function bijective. For that we have to consider an interval in which all values of the function exist and do not repeat. Now for the inverse of a function the domain becomes range and the range becomes domain. Thus the range of cosine function, that is, [1,1] becomes the domain of inverse function.

Neha wants to prepare a handmade gift box for her sister's birthday at home. For making lower part of box; the takes a square piece of card board of side 10 cm.
Based on the given information, answer the following questions.
Q.46: If x cm be the length of the square card board which is to be cut off from corners of the square piece of side 10 cm, the possible value of x will be given by the interval.
(a) [0, 10]
(b) (0, 20)
(c) (0, 5)
(d) None of these
Correct Answer is Option (c)
Since, side of square is of length 10 cm therefore x ∈ (0, 5)
Q.47: Volume of the open box formed by folding up the cutting corner can be expressed as
(a) V = x(10 – 2x)^{2}
(b) V = (x – 10)(10 – 2x)^{2}
(c) V = x(10 – 2x)(10 + 2x)
(d) V = (x – 5)(10 – 2x)^{2}
Correct Answer is Option (a)
Height of open box = x cm
Length of open box = 10 – 2x
and width of open box = 10 – 2x
∴ Volume of the open box
= x(10 – 2x)(10 – 2x)
= x(10 – 2x)^{2}
Q.48: The values of x for which dV/dx = 0 are,
(a) 5/3,  2
(b) 5, 5/3
(c) 5, 3/2
(d) 5, 3
Correct Answer is Option (b)
V = x(10 – 2x)^{2}
+ (10 – 2x)^{2}
= (10 – 2x)[–4x + 10 – 2x]
= (10 – 2x)(10 – 6x)
Now dV/dx = 0⇒ 10 – 2x = 0 or 10 – 6x = 0
⇒ x = 5 or 5/3.
Q.49: Neha is intrested in maximising the volume of the box. So, what should be the side of the square to be cut off so that the volume of the box is maximum.
(a) 4 cm

∴ Volume of the box will be maximum
When x = 5/3 cm.

(a) 1000/9 cm^{3}
(b) 2000/9 cm^{3}
(c) 2000/27 cm^{3}
(d) 1000/27 cm^{3}
Correct Answer is Option (c)
V = x(10 – 2x)^{2}∴ Maximum volume
