The first one is, perhaps, more complicated than necessary:

 

$$\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}(\cot x - \frac{1}{x})$$

 

$$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{\cos x}{\sin x}-\frac{1}{x})$$

 

As x → 0, cos x → 1 and sin x → x, so we get:

 

$$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{1}{x} - \frac{1}{x})=\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(0) = 0$$

.

The second one is ok.

And for the second picture I found that when x goes to infinity fx goes to infinity ! 

but the graph doesn't show that !!!

$$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{x+1}{x}-\frac{2}{sin(2x)})$$

 

Write this as:

$$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(1+\frac{1}{x}-\frac{2}{sin(2x)})$$

 

as x tends to 0, sin(2x) tends to 2x, so 2/2x tends to 1/x:

$$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(1+\frac{1}{x}-\frac{1}{x})=1$$

.

The graph of ex/x4 does go to infinity as x goes to infinity.  It does so so rapidly, that the values get too large to show for the range of x's you can see!
