  • The general solution for $x$ in $\cot x$ is $x=n\pi+\alpha$
  • A function is said to be differentiable at every point in its domain.
$f(x)=\cot x$
The general solution is $\theta=n\pi+\alpha,n\in z$
Hence the function is discontinuous on the set $\left\{x=n\pi,n\in z\right\}$
The correct option is $A$.
