  • question_answer \[{{\log }_{e}}(1+x)=\sum\limits_{i=1}^{\infty }{\left[ \frac{{{(-1)}^{i+1}}{{x}^{i}}}{i} \right]}\] is defined for  [Roorkee 1990]

    A) \[x\in (-1,\,1)\]

    B) Any positive (+) real x

    C) \[x\in (-1,\,1]\]

    D) Any positive (+) real \[x(x\ne 1)\]

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    \[{{\log }_{e}}(1+x)=\sum\limits_{i=1}^{\infty }{\frac{{{(-1)}^{i+1}}{{x}^{i}}}{i}}\]is defined for \[x\in (-1,1]\] Because \[{{\log }_{e}}(1+x)=x-\frac{{{x}^{2}}}{2}+\frac{{{x}^{3}}}{3}-\frac{{{x}^{4}}}{4}+....\infty \] is defined for \[(-1<x\le 1)\].
