I'm not sure what limits have to do with this, but here is my take on it: From condition III, we must have: where r and k are nonzero real constants. From condition II, we then find: so that we have: This satisfies condition I, and we find: ' for all real x.

After having some sleep, I feel kind of thick now! Of course, where derivatives are concerned there are limits. I like your solution, especially the use of L'Hôpital's rule.
