answer to first question = as they asked about smallest positive root so tan x cant be -ve as x is always + vs nd in 0 ,pi/2 tan x is always gr8 dan x ... but from pi to 3pi/2 tan x goes from 0 to infinity  so it will at some point of time in 3rd quadrant will be = x ......... alternative method is by drawing graphs u will easily get it ............................................................................. ANSWER TO 2ND QUESTION  2TANX = PI/2 - X ........... PI/2 - X IS A STRAIGHT LINE SO U CAN DRAW IT ND THEN 2 TAN X GRAPH PLEASE DRAW IT U CAN OBSERVE THAT THE GRAPHS INTERSECTS AT 3 POSITIONS ONE EACH IN FRST 2ND ND 4TH QUADRANTS .THANK YOU PLEASE APPROVE MY ANSWER IF U LIKE IT
