Solution

$\lim_{x \to 2^-} \frac{x}{\left[ x \right]}$
$\text{ Let } x = 2 - h, \text{ where h } \to 0 .$
$\lim_{h \to 0} \frac{\left( 2 - h \right)}{\left[ 2 - h \right]}$
$= \frac{2}{1}$
$\lim_{x \to 2^+} \frac{x}{\left[ x \right]}$
$\text{ Let } x = 2 + \text{ h, where h } \to 0 .$
$\lim_{h \to 0} \frac{\left( 2 + h \right)}{\left[ 2 + h \right]}$
$= \frac{2}{2}$
$= 1$
$\therefore \lim_{x \to 2^-} \frac{x}{\left[ x \right]} \neq \lim_{x \to 2^+} \frac{x}{\left[ x \right]}$
