Do it in two steps. First find the range of ln(arg). If it is more than 2? in length, then the range of the sin is [1,1].

Range of ln(arg) is of course, R. But how it is varying with the sine function...is something I am not able to arrive at.

When the domain of a sine function is the entire real line, the sine simply oscillates between 1 and 1. Therefore the range is [1,1]. I don't understand what your concern is?

You need to compute the range of on the interval (2, 1), then consider the sine of that range of values.
