A)
Toolbox:
  • $\tan(A+B)=\large\frac{\tan a+\tan B}{1-\tan A\tan B}$
$\tan 75^{\large\circ}-\cot 75^{\large\circ}$
$\tan 75^{\large\circ}-\large\frac{1}{\tan 75^{\large\circ}}$
$\tan (45^{\large\circ}+30^{\large\circ})-\large\frac{1}{\tan( 45^{\large\circ}+30^{\large\circ})}$
$\large\frac{\tan 45^{\large\circ}+\tan 30^{\large\circ}}{1-\tan 45^{\large\circ}\tan 30^{\large\circ}}-\frac{1-\tan 45^{\large\circ}\tan 30^{\large\circ}}{\tan 45^{\large\circ}\tan 30^{\large\circ}}$
$\large\frac{1+\Large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}}{1-\Large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}}-\large\frac{1-\Large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}}{1+\Large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}}$
$\large\frac{(1+\Large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3})^2-(1+\Large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3})^2}{1-\Large\frac{1}{3}}$
$\large\frac{1+\large\frac{1}{3}+\frac{2}{\sqrt 3}\normalsize -1-\large\frac{1}{3}+\frac{2}{\sqrt 3}}{\Large\frac{2}{3}}$
$\large\frac{4}{\sqrt 3}\times \frac{3}{2}$
$2\sqrt 3$
Hence (A) is the correct answer.
