### Comparing Improper Integrals Involving Infinity

From my current understanding: $K>J$ and $L>K$ , therefore $L>K>J$. How can I compare the first integral $I$ ?
I have narrowed it down to C, E, and F, since we know that $1/x^{1/5}$ is always greater than the original function for all $x\geq 1$. However, the second set of conditions is more difficult to ...
