$\;\;\;\;\;\;\;=\left\{\begin{array}{1 1}x;&x< -1\\x^3;&-1\leq x\leq 0\\x;&0\leq x\leq 1\\x^3;&x\geq 1\end{array}\right.$
$\therefore f'(x)=\left\{\begin{array}{1 1}1;&x< -1\\3x^2;&-1\leq x\leq 0\\1;&0\leq x\leq 1\\3x^2;&x\geq 1\end{array}\right.$
$\Rightarrow f$ is not differentiable at $-1,0$ and $1$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
