1. Hey, there is a limit !
I will do the first one, then you try the rest.

Which of the following are identities? Check all that apply.
(Points : 2)
sin2x = 1 - cos2x
I assume you mean sin^2 x not sin 2x
This is the same as
sin^2 x + cos^2 x = 1
which IS an identity.

sin^2x - cos^2x = 1 No way

tan2x = 1 + sec2x
sin^2 x/cos^2x = 1 + 1/cos^2 x
is
sin^2 x cos^2 x = 1 which is the same No way

cot2x = csc2x - 1
is
cos^2 x/sin^2 x = 1/sin^2 x -1
cos^2 x = 1 - sin^2 x
cos^2 x + sin^2 x = 1 YES
