Using trigonometry property:-
$1+ \cos 2 \theta = 2\cos ^2 \theta$
=> $ \large\frac{1}{2 \cos ^2 x/2}$
=> $\large\frac{1}{2} $$\int \sec^2 \bigg(\large\frac{x}{2}\bigg) $$dx$
=> $\large\frac{1}{2} \times $$ \tan (\large \frac{x}{2})$$ \times 2 +c$
By solving this we get,
$\tan \bigg(\large\frac{x}{2}\bigg)+$$c$
Hence a is the correct answer.
