    first question is correct

    #2 should be true.
    sin^-1 (x) means find the angle Ø so that sinØ = x
    since the result of taking the sine is always a number between -1 and +1
    then for sin^-2 (x) , your choice of x has to be -1 ≤ x ≤ 1

    e.g try taking sin^-1 (1.4) on your calculator
    that is
    2nd
    sin
    1.4
    =

    you should get an "error" result
