Dear Aditi,

Expand tan x using taylors theorem and then reduce the expression to get the answer.

the Mcclaurin series expansion is

ey=∑y=0 to ∞yn/n!

therefore, lim x→0   (etanx -  ex) / (tan x -x)=1+(1/(tanx-x))(tan2x-x2+tan3x-x3...


In case more explanation is needed, please email me at:

Dear Aditi


lim x→0   (etanx -  ex) / (tan x -x)

take ex   as common

so we get

lim x→0 ex  (etanx-x -  1) / (tan x -x)

this is nothing but the standard limit

limit x tends to 0 (ex - 1)/x = 1 

where x = tanx - x 

so it is equal to 1

so the answer is 1 and not 1/2   

we can also check this by L hospital rule as it is 0/0
