  • $\int e^x[f(x)+f'(x)]=e^xf(x)$
  • $\large\frac{d}{dx}\big(\frac{1}{x}\big)=\frac{-1}{x^2}$
Step 1:
Let $I=\int e^x\bigg(\large\frac{1-x}{1+x^2}\bigg)^2$$dx$
$\quad=\int e^x\bigg(\large\frac{1+x^2-2x}{(1+x^2)^2}\bigg)$$dx$
On splitting the terms,
$\quad=\int e^x\begin{bmatrix}\large\frac{1}{(1+x^2)}-\frac{2x}{(1+x^2)^2}\end{bmatrix}$$dx$
Step 2:
If $f(x)=\large\frac{1}{1+x^2}$ then $f'(x)=\large\frac{-2x}{(1+x^2)^2}$
Clearly this is of the form
$\int e^x[f(x)+f'(x)dx]=e^xf(x)+c$
Hence $I=\large\frac{e^x}{1+x^2}$$+c$.
Hence the correct option is A.
