First, please remember your Order of Operations. You have NOT written \(\dfrac{x-1}{x^{2}-1}\). Give it another go and use more parentheses. Denominator = 0 -- Discontinuity. Is it an Asymptote or NonRemovable Discoutinuity? Numerator = 0 AT THE SAME PLACE, this it's Removable and NOT an Asymptote.

non removable

?? There are two. 1) Which one are you talking about. 2) What's the other one?

removable discontinuity or infinite

so it will be replacing 0 will give you discontity right? and not any other number?

Please make a better effort to use complete sentences and to be substantially more clear. I'll do a quick example. Sentences, paragraphs, examples, order. Working with the Denominator: \(x^{2} - 1 = (x+1)(x-1)\) This denominator takes on the value zero at x = 1 and x = -1. These values are NOT in the Domain and are discontinuities. We do not yet know what kind of discontinuity. Working with the Numerator x - 1 = 0 when x = 1 This is enough information. x = 1 makes both Numerator and Denominator zero. This is, therefore, a removable discontinuity. Our original expression is equivalent to 1/(x+1) everywhere EXCEPT x = 1. x = -1 makes only the denominator zero. This is, therefore, an asymptote or infinite discontinuity. Now, we are done.
