    It is pi/3 and 2pi/3 between 0 and 2pi

    I did pi - pi/3 because sin is also positive in that quadrant

    yes exactly.. so when we find inverse if get more values we take the lesser value usually.. for example 7pi/3 is also giving same answer but by using the concept above answer will b what?

    ok...... asuming a fuction itself is zero may not lad you to corrct ansewr... also... here the cos (x) cancels each other (ofcourse before assuming it zero) hence assuming cos (x) = 0 is wrong..
