    Now , since \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} \cos(x) = 1\]

    And, on the other hand \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} x^4 = 0\]

    You have the product of those two being (surprise , surprise !) 0

    Theorem we all can use states that Product of a Bounded function by another function that tends to zero - also tends to ZERO in the same limit

    Buut\[|\cos(\frac{2}{x})| \leq 1, alwayz\]

    So we do have true the required assumptions: One of the factors (i.e. cos 2/x) is a bounded function while the other factor : x^4 tends to 0 when x-->0
