The graph of f(x), a trigonometric function, and the graph of g(x) = c intersect at n points over the interval 0 <= x <= 2pi. There are m algebraic solutions to the equation f(x) = g(x), where m > n. Which of the following functions are most likely to be f(x)?

f(x) = cos x
f(x) = sqrt(sin x)
f(x) = cos^2 x + cos x
f(x) = sin^2 x + cos^2 x

1. Go to any number of web sites that do graphs. (a good one is wolframalpha.com)
Take a look at the functions.
For example, cosx intersects y=c at 1 or 2 points during one period, depending on c.
see http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=cosx

for the last one, remember your most basic trig identity.
