If both f(x) and g(x) are differentible functions at x = x0 then the function defined as h(x) = Maximum [ f(x),  g(x)] is

(a)always differentiable at x=x0

(b)never differentiable at x=x0

(c)is differentiable at z=z0, provided f(x0) ≠ g(x0)

(d) cannot be differentiable at x=x0 if f(x0) = g(x0)

Dear Sanchit Gupta,


If f(x) = g(x), then h(x)=f(x), and h(x) is differentiable at x= xo.

So options (b) and (d) are wrong.

Let f(x) and g(x) be to different.

Consider f(x) = g(x) at x = xo, then

h(x) is not differentiable at xo, since it will have a sharp edge at that point.

Hence option (a) is also wrong.

If f(xo) ≠ g(xo), then h(x) is differentiable at xo, provided both f(x) and g(x) are differentiable at xo, which is given.

Hence option (c) is correct.
