## Text Solution

#### Steps:

(i)

\begin{align} & \text{ 9 se}{{\text{c}}^{\text{2}}}\text{A }-\text{ 9 ta}{{\text{n}}^{\text{2}}}\text{A} \\ \\ &=9\text{ (se}{{\text{c}}^{\text{2}}}\text{A}-\text{ta}{{\text{n}}^{\text{2}}}\text{A) } \\& =\text{9 }\left( \text{1} \right) \\ & \begin{bmatrix} \text{By the identity,} \\ 1+ \sec ^2 A = \tan ^2 A \\ \Rightarrow \sec ^2 A - \tan^2A=1 \end{bmatrix} \\ & = 9\end{align}

(ii)

\begin{align} \left( \text{1 + tan }\theta\text{ + sec } \theta \right) \left( \text{1 + cot }\theta\text{ - cosec }\theta \right) \ldots (1) \end{align}

We know that the trigonometric functions,

\begin{align} & \tan (x)=\frac{\sin (x)}{\cos (x)} \\ & \cot (x)=\frac{\cos (x)}{\sin (x)}=\frac{1}{\tan (x)} \end{align}

And

\begin{align} \sec (x)&=\frac{1}{\cos (x)} \\ {cosec}(x)&=\frac{1}{\sin (x)} \end{align}

By substituting the above function in Equation $$(1)$$,

\begin{align}& = \begin{bmatrix} \left( 1+ \frac{\text{sin }\theta }{\text{cos }\theta } + \frac{1}{\text{cos }\theta } \right) \left( 1+ \frac{\text{cos }\theta }{\text{sin }\theta } - \frac{1}{\text{sin }\theta} \right) \end{bmatrix} \\ & = \begin{bmatrix} \left( \frac{\text{cos }\theta\text{ +sin }\theta+1}{\text{cos }\theta} \right) \left( \frac{\text{sin }\theta\text{ +cos }\theta -1}{\text{sin }\theta} \right)\end{bmatrix}\\& \text{(By taking LCM and multiplying)}\\\\& = \frac{{{\text{(sin }\theta +\text{cos} \theta )}^2}-(1)^2}{\text{sin }\theta \text{cos }\theta}\\& \text{(Using )}\\ \\&= \frac{ \begin{Bmatrix}\text{sin}^2 \theta \text{ +co}{{\text{s}}^2} \theta \\ \text{ +2sin }\theta\text{ cos }\theta -1 \end{Bmatrix} }{\text{sin }\theta\text{ cos }\theta} \\ & = \frac{\text{1+2sin }\theta\text{ cos }\theta -1 }{\text{sin }\theta\text{ cos}\theta}\\&\text{(Using identify)}\\\\&=\frac{\text{2sin }\theta\text{ cos }\theta\text{ }}{\text{sin }\theta\text{ cos }\theta\text{ }}\text{= 2}\end{align}

Hence, option (C) is correct.

(iii)

\begin{align}\left( \text{sec A + tan A} \right) \left( 1 - \text{sin A} \right) \ldots \left( 1 \right)\end{align}

We know that the trigonometric functions,

\begin{align}\tan (x)=\frac{\sin (x)}{\cos (x)}\end{align}

And

\begin{align}\sec (x)=\frac{1}{\cos (x)}\end{align}

By substituting the above function in Equation $$(1)$$,

\begin{align} &= \begin{bmatrix} \left( \frac{1}{\text{cosA}} + \frac{\text{sinA}}{\text{cosA}} \right) (1-\text{sinA)} \end{bmatrix} \\ & =\left( \frac{\text{1+sinA}}{\text{cosA}} \right) (1-\text{sinA)} \\ & = \frac{1-\text{si}{{\text{n}}^{2}}\text{A}}{\text{cosA}} \\ & = \frac{\text{co}{{\text{s}}^{2}}\text{A}}{\text{cosA}} \\ & \begin{bmatrix} \text{By identity}\\\sin^2 \theta+ \cos^{2} \theta=1 \\ \Rightarrow 1- {\rm{sin^2}} θ = {\rm{cos^2}} θ \end{bmatrix} \\ &= \cos A\end{align}
Hence, option (D) is correct.

(iv) \begin{align}\frac{1+{{\tan }^{2}}\text{A}}{1+{{\cot }^{2}}\text{A}}\end{align}

We know that the trigonometric functions,

\begin{align} \tan (x)&=\frac{\sin (x)}{\cos (x)} \\ \cot (x)&=\frac{\cos (x)}{\sin (x)} \\ & =\frac{1}{\tan (x)} \end{align}

By substituting the above function in Equation ($$1$$),

\begin{align}\frac{{{\rm{1 + ta}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}{{{\rm{1 + co}}{{\rm{t}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}&= \frac{{{{1 + }}\frac{{{\rm{sin}}^2{{A}}}}{{{\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}}}{{{{1 + }}\frac{{{\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}{{{\rm{si}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{\rm{A}}}}}}\\ &= \frac{{\frac{{{\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}} + {\rm{si}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}{{{\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}}}{{\frac{{{\rm{si}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{{A}} + {\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}{{{\rm{si}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}}}\\&=\frac{{\frac{{{1}}}{{{\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}}}{{\frac{1}{{{\rm{si}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}}}\\&=\frac{{{\rm{si}}{{\rm{n}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}{{{\rm{co}}{{\rm{s}}^{{2}}}{{A}}}}\\&= \rm{tan}^2 A\end{align}

Hence, option ($$D$$) is correct
