  • Every differentiable function is continuous,but the converse is not true.
  • A function is said to be differentiable at every point in its domain.
Step 1:
$f(x)=e^{\large |x|}$
For all values of $x$,the function is continuous,because $e^x$ is a continuous function at all points.
But when $x=0,e^{\large x}=e^0=1$
It becomes a constant.
Hence it is not differentiable.
The function is continuous everywhere,but not differentiable at $x=0$.
The correct option is $A$.
