I can do DC analysis and draw the small signal equivalent circuit just fine. I generally have trouble calculating gain. I'm having trouble understanding the answer to this question.

This is the question. Question 4.36: X7hFw.jpg"]

This is my working. I hope it is clear: T6147N0.jpg


According to the solution manual this is the wrong answer. The correct answer is `Av = Vo / Vo + 1`: GCe2W.png

I don't understand. Vi is in parallel with Vsg therefore it Vi must equal Vsg right? Where did I make a mistake?

Vi has not to be equal to Vgs because coupling is capacitive and Vi signal will be on the Vgs so the input signal at the gate of the MOS will be;

Vgs+Vi=Vgs+Vi*cos(wt+Theta)
