probability can be no more than 1, so you can exclude a couple of answers right away

comment Using integral definition to solve this integral
For every partition P there is a partition P' where P' has fixed delta equal to the smallest $t_i - t_{i-1}$ in P. Since the function is decreasing, s(f; P) < s(f; P'), and so $$\sup_P s(f;P) \le \sup_{P'} s(f;P')$$ But P' is just a (specialised) partition, so $$\sup_{P'} s(f;P) \le \sup_{P} s(f;P)$$ So $$\sup_P s(f;P) = \sup_{P'} s(f;P')$$ and from there you can use Mhenni Benghorbal

comment Probabilty with profit question.
It depends what you mean by "profitable". Average or expected profit is the sum of (probability * profit) e.g. for first table 1/3 * 350 + 1/6 * 350 - 1/6 * 100 - 1/3 * 100. Maximum profit is just 350 for the first table etc

And note that you can get $b$ in terms of $a$

comment How do you find the equation of this straight line?
Use implicit differentiation to get m = dy/dx. Then (for tangent) find line with slope m, passing through whatever point you've been given. For normal, find line with slope -1/m passing through the point.

comment how to build a function that holds some condition
Also any sum of suitable functions. So for instance $f_1(x)=c, f_2(x)=x^2, f_3(x)=exp(x)$ will all work, and so will, say $f_4(x) = c + x^2 + exp(x)$.
