    The graph of the function y = f[x} = cos x cos [x + 2) - cos2 [x + 1) is

    A)  a straight line through \[(0,-{{\sin }^{2}}1)\] with slope 2

    B)  a straight line through (0, 0)

    C) a parabola with vertex \[(1,-{{\sin }^{2}}1)\]

    D)  a straight line through \[\left( \frac{\pi }{2},-{{\sin }^{2}}1 \right)\] and parallel to x-axis

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

     We have given that \[f(x)=\cos x\cos (x+2)-{{\cos }^{2}}(x+1)\] \[=\cos (x+1-1)\cos (x+1+1)-{{\cos }^{2}}(x+1)\] \[={{\cos }^{2}}(x+1)-{{\sin }^{2}}1-{{\cos }^{2}}(x+1)\] \[\because \]\[\cos (A+B)\cos (A-B)={{\cos }^{2}}A-{{\sin }^{2}}B\]                                 \[f(x)=-{{\sin }^{2}}1\] i.e.,            \[y=-{{\sin }^{2}}1\] (a constant quantity) Hence, the graph is a straight line parallel to x-axis and passing through \[\left( \frac{\pi }{2},-{{\sin }^{2}}1 \right).\] Here, \[\frac{\pi }{2}\] can be replaced by any real number.
