    answer is 1,actually it's proof is a bit theoretical .if you want any proof please refer some standard text

    it's proof is well known and is known as sandwich theorem

    as x reduces, the sin of x also reduces, then why 1

    if u put the value of limit then u will get 0/0 form

    i think for the time being, it is enough that the limit of that is = 1 .... as i will advance in this calculus, i will come across the proof soon and become familiar with that ...

    sin(x) for small x is x. x/x is 1 for any x.

    cosx<(sinx/x)<1 here (sinx/x) is sandwiched between cosx & 1 (here not that cosx is also 1 when x tends to zero so sinx/x has no other option other than to tend to zero) that's why it has got the name sandwich or squeeze theorem

    you see arc there = it's value = \(r\theta\), when \( \theta->0\), the ARC and H seem to be one line. or h/rQ -> tends to one as Q->0 h/r = sinQ => sinQ/Q->1 as Q->0

    It's not both approach to zero ... it's how their ratio approach as Q approaches to zero -> that is limit.
