That's a very strange defintion. Note that f(0) is just a number, so all they had to say was f(x)=1 for x=0, the 1^x bit is superfluous. But moreover, the function is not continuous at x=0, so doesn't have any derivatives, let alone 26. Which leads me to ask, are you sure you copied the question correctly?
