A)
$\sec^2 x (1+\tan ^2 x) dx$
$\qquad=\sec^2 x dx+ \int \sec^2 x + \tan ^2 x dx$
$\qquad= \tan x + \int \sec^2 x \tan ^2 x dx$
$\tan x =t$
differentiate $\sec^2 x dx=dt$
$\qquad= \tan x +\int t^2 dt$
$\qquad= \tan x +\frac{ t^3 }{3}+c$
=>$\tan x +\large\frac{\tan ^3 x }{3} +c$
Hence b is the correct answer.
