Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't think it is odd. A function is odd if f(x) =f(x) for each x in the domain of f. This implies that the domain should be centered around 0 (or that is consists of all real numbers). Here, f(pi) = 0, while f(pi) is not even defined. So f cannot be odd.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1On the other hand, this function is symmetric in x = pi/2, which means that f(pi/2 x) = f(pi/2 + x), for every x in the domain.
