Solution

## The correct option is A True As we saw, a function is decreasing at a point x = a, if it is decreasing in the neighborhood. So, we will find the value of the function at x = a-h, a and a+h. If we get a relation f(a-h) ≥ f(a) ≥ f(a+h), then we say that the function is decreasing at x = a. This could be lengthy. Instead, if we have f’(a) ≤ 0, we can say that the function is decreasing about x =a. So, we will find f’( π ) to check if the function is decreasing about x = π f’(x) = cos(x) f’( π ) = cos ( π ) = -1 Which is negative. So we can clearly say that the function is decreasing about x = π.
