Correct Answer - Option 3 : 8


cos 2x = 1 - 2sin2

\(\rm lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{sinx}{x}=1\)



Given: \(\rm \mathop {\lim} \limits_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{(1-\cos 2x)^3}{x^6}\)

We know, cos 2x = 1 - 2sin2x ⇒ 1 - cos 2x =  2sin2x

\(\rm \mathop {\lim} \limits_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{(1-\cos 2x)^3}{x^6}\)

\(\rm \mathop {\lim} \limits_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{(2sin^2x)^3}{x^6}\)

\(\rm \mathop {\lim} \limits_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{8sin^6x}{x^6}\)

\(\rm 8\times \mathop {\lim} \limits_{x\rightarrow 0} (\frac{sinx}{x})^6\)

= 8                      (∵ \(\rm\mathop {\lim} \limits_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{sinx}{x}=1\) )

Hence, option (3) is correct.
