You should evaluate the limit of the function `e^x`  under the given condition, such that:

`lim_(x->-oo) e^x = e^(-oo)`

Using negative power property yields:

`a^(-b) = 1/a^b`

Reasoning by analogy yields:

`e^(-oo) = 1/e^oo = 1/oo = 0`

Hence, evaluating the limit of the given function `e^x` , under the given...
