Given limit $\big(0/0\big)$
$\Rightarrow\lim\limits_{x\to 0}\large\frac{-(1/2)(\cos x)^{-1/2}\sin x+(1/3)(\cos x)^{-2/3}\sin x}{2\sin x\cos x}$
(L Hospital Rule)
$\Rightarrow \lim\limits_{x\to 0}\large\frac{(-1/2)(\cos x)^{-1/2}+1/3(\cos x)^{-2/3}}{2\cos x}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{2}\big(-\large\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{3}\big)$
$\Rightarrow -\large\frac{1}{12}$
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
