a.
sin(theta)= sin(theta)
sin(pi/6)=  sin(pi/6)= 1/2
b.
cos(theta)=cos(theta)
cos(pi/6)=cos(pi/6)= sqroot(3)/2
c.
pi
d.
The cosine function, like all of the trigonometric functions, is periodic about the rotation around a circle. Since the cosine is defined as the adjacent/hypotenuse of a right triangle, you can clearly see that its value can never be greater than one or less than 1 since the hypotenuse is always longer than the adjacent side. It turns out that, indeed, the cosine's range is from 1 to 1, written [1,1].
e.
pi/2,pi
