A)
Toolbox:
  • $\tan (\large\frac{\pi}{2}$$+\theta)=-\cot \theta$
  • $\tan \theta=\tan \alpha\Rightarrow \theta=n\pi+\alpha$
Given
$\tan 2x=-\cot (x+\large\frac{\pi}{6})$
$\tan 2x=\tan (\large\frac{\pi}{2}$$+x+\large\frac{\pi}{6})$
$\tan (\large\frac{\pi}{2}$$+\theta)=-\cot \theta$
$\tan 2x=\tan (\large\frac{2\pi}{3}$$+x)$
$2x=n\pi+(\large\frac{2\pi}{3}$$+x) n\in I$
$\tan \theta=\tan \alpha\Rightarrow \theta=n\pi+\alpha$
Hence the required solution is given by
$x=n\pi+ \large\frac{2\pi}{3}$$,n\in I$
Hence (A) is the correct answer.
