  • If a linear differential equation is of the form $\large \frac{dy}{dx}$$=f(x)$ then it can be solved by seperating the variables and then integrating
Given $e^x \cos y \;dx-e^x \sin y\; dy=0$
Dividing by $e^x$ we get
$\cos y \;dx=\sin y \; dy$
$=>\large\frac{\sin y}{\cos y}$$dy=dx$
(ie)$ \tan y \;dy=dx$
Integrating on both sides we get,
$\int \tan y \;dy=\int dx$
$=> -\log_e |\cos y|=x+c$
$=>\log_e \bigg(\large\frac{1}{\cos y}\bigg)$$=x+c$
$=>e^x=\large\frac{1}{\cos y}+c$
$\cos y.e^x=c$
Hence $A$ is the correct answer
