Description:

This test contains twenty questions on Limits and continuity of functions, derivatives and Applications of Derivatives. Unless otherwise specified, the domain of a function f is assumed to be the set of all real numbers x for which f(x) is a real number. Wherever appeared, lnx represents the natural logarithm of x with base e. Sometimes, the options may not contain exact numerical value of an answer. In that case, select best approximation to the numerical value you got. After examining the form of the choices, decide the best of the choices given.
