Multivariable Limits

Has anybody idea on what techniques I can apply on these limits?

at c and d I did direct substitution since there is no zero at the denominator. Is that correct?

a) I converted polar form and denominator became cos^2Theta+Sin^2theta = 1 so that limit exists

no techniques I know work and I couldn't prove it DNE either.

But by changing the direction you approach the limit point you can make the result head to either plus or minus infinity and thus the limit doesn't exist. c) $\lim \limits_{x\to 1 \\y \to -1}~~\dfrac{x^2 ye^y}{x^4+4y^2}$ just plug the values in. d) Same here, just plug the limit values in. I don't see why this problem would be harder. The graph looks perfectly smooth. Thanks from Leonardox
