Hint-Use the concept of maxima and minima.Highest and lowest point is generally the maxima and minima of a graph.

Here we have to find the maximum value of ${\text{3cos}}\theta {\text{ + 4sin}}\theta $

So let ${\text{f}}\left( \theta \right) = {\text{3cos}}\theta {\text{ + 4sin}}\theta $

Now our first derivative ${{\text{f}}^1}\left( \theta \right) = - 3\sin \theta + 4\cos \theta $

Now double differentiating it we get ${{\text{f}}^{11}}\left( \theta \right) = - 3\cos \theta - 4\sin \theta $

In order to find max and min value we have to make ${{\text{f}}^1}\left( \theta \right) = 0$

Hence ${\text{ - 3sin}}\theta {\text{ + 4cos}}\theta {\text{ = 0}}$

On solving above we get ${\text{tan}}\theta {\text{ = }}\dfrac{4}{3}$

As we know that ${\text{tan}}\theta {\text{ = }}\dfrac{P}{H}$

Hence our ${\text{sin}}\theta {\text{ = }}\dfrac{4}{5}{\text{ and cos}}\theta {\text{ = }}\dfrac{3}{5}$

Now for this value of ${\text{sin}}\theta {\text{ and cos}}\theta $, the value of double derivative of $f(\theta ) $should be less than zero as we have to find maximum value of the expression.

${{\text{f}}^{11}}\left( \theta \right) < 0$

$ - 3\cos \theta - 4\sin \theta < 0$

Putting the values

$ - 3\left( {\dfrac{3}{5}} \right) - 4\left( {\dfrac{4}{5}} \right) < 0$

So max value of

${\text{3cos}}\theta {\text{ + 4sin}}\theta = 3 \times \left( {\dfrac{3}{5}} \right) + 4 \times \left( {\dfrac{4}{5}} \right)$

$ = \dfrac{{25}}{5}$Which is equal to 5

Hence option (b) is the right answer.

Note- Whenever we face such a problem the key concept that we need to use is that we always put the first derivative equal to 0 to obtain the values. Now double differentiate and cross verify that whether the value obtained corresponds to maximum or minimum for the function. This helps in reaching the right answer.
