Let $f(x) = 0$ ; $x \epsilon R\{0,1\}$. Then a) $f$ is discontinuous at $0$ and $1$ b) $f$ is continuous but not differentiable at $0$ and $1$ c) $f$ is differentiable at $0$ and $1$ but $f'$ is not continuous at $0$ and $1$ d) none of the above If $f'(x) =0$, then is it continuous? Only option (c) I have doubt. If yes, then the answer would be option (d). Last edited by skipjack; August 8th, 2018 at 06:56 PM.

I suppose you mean $f(x) = 0$ for $x \in \mathbb{R}  \{0,1\}$? If so, then the answer should be (d). You should find examples which violate each of (a)(c). Also, $f'(x) = 0$ is not necessary for any examples, nor does this assumption make any of the claims true. I'm not even sure how it's related. Last edited by skipjack; August 8th, 2018 at 06:57 PM.

I assume that "x∈R−{0,1}" means that f is not defined at 0 and 1. In that case it is not continuous so not differentiable there.

If f(x) is not defined at 0 or 1, then d) applies for lack of information.

What information did you have in mind for choice (a)?
