    With identities arrange the limit to  \frac{0}{0} or \frac{\infty}{\infty} form and use the L'Hospital rule.

    1, lim_{x\rightarrow 1^+} \frac {lnx}{cos \frac{\pi x}{2}} \cdot lim_{x\rightarrow 1^+} sin \frac {\pi x}{2}

    2. Use the L"Hospital to the first limit
    the lim_{x\rightarrow 1^+} sin \frac {\pi x}{2} will canceled out

    \displaystyle \left (cos \frac{\pi x}{2}\right )' =-sin\frac{\pi x}{2} \cdot \frac {\pi}{2}
