Ans. (1) $1+\sqrt{17}\over2$

Sol. $\left|{|x|+5\over x^2+1}\right|\leq1$

$|x|+5\leq x^2+1$

$x^2-|x|-4\geq0$

Let $|x|=t\implies t^2-t-4\geq0$

$\left(|x|+{\sqrt{17}-1\over2}\right)\left(|x|-{\sqrt{17}+1\over2}\right)\geq0$

$x\in\left(-\infty,-{\sqrt{17}+1\over2}\right]\cup\left[{\sqrt{17}+1\over2},\infty\right)$

$a={1+\sqrt{17}\over2}$
