Given
$\underset{x\to 0}{lim}f\left(x\right)=\frac{1}{2}$ and $limg\left(x\right)=\sqrt{2}$
we have to find
$f\left(x\right)\frac{\mathrm{cos}x}{x-1}$
we know
$\underset{x\to 0}{lim}f\left(x\right)\cdot g\left(x\right)=\left[\underset{x\to 0}{lim}f\left(x\right)\right]\left[\underset{x\to 0}{lim}g\left(x\right)\right]$
and $\underset{x\to 0}{lim}\frac{f\left(x\right)}{g\left(x\right)}=\underset{x\to 0}{lim}\frac{f\left(x\right)}{\underset{x\to 0}{lim}g\left(x\right)}$
$\underset{x\to 0}{lim}\frac{f\left(x\right)\mathrm{cos}x}{x-1}=\left[\underset{x\to 0}{lim}f\left(x\right)\right]\cdot \left[\underset{x\to 0}{lim}\frac{\mathrm{cos}x}{x-1}\right]$
$=\frac{\frac{1}{2}\underset{x\to 0}{lim}\mathrm{cos}x}{\underset{x\to 0}{lim}\left(x-1\right)}$
$=\frac{1}{2}\cdot \frac{1}{-1}$
$=-\frac{1}{2}$
