### Explanatory Answer

##### Method of solving this CAT Question from CAT Geometry - Trigonometry : Can we use pythagorean triplets here? Think!!

Always look out for Pythagorean triplets, we know that (8,15,17) is one
âˆ´ The expression becomes: 17 ($$frac{8}{17}\\$ Cosâ?¡A +$\frac{15}{17}\\$ SinA) Let there be a angle B for which sin B = $\frac{8}{17}\\$, cos B = $\frac{15}{17}\\$ => 17$ sin B cos A + cos B sin A) + 15
17(sin(A+B)) + 15

We know that sin(A+B)max = 1
sin(A+B)min = -1

âˆ´ Max value = 17 * 1 +15 = 32
Min value = 17 * -1 + 15 = -2

The question is "to find the maximum and minimum value "

##### Hence, the answer is 32; -2

Choice B is the correct answer.
