Let $F = (P(x,y),Q(x,y))$ a field of vector class 1 in the ring $A={(x,y): 4<x²+y²<9}$ and $x,y$ reals.

I am having trouble to understand why this alternative is wrong:

If $ \partial P /\partial y = \partial Q /\partial x$ for every x,y inside A, so $\int_{C} Pdx + Qdy = 0$ for every circumference $\epsilon $ A.

I mean, the condition implies that $Curl F = 0$, and we have that the field of vector is C1, so we don't need to worry with anomalies or problems that could appear as $(...)/0$. In fact, $\int_{C} Pdx + Qdy = \int_{S} \nabla \times F \space ds = \int_{S} 0 \space ds = 0$

Where is my error? If i am wrong, could you give me an example of a vector field that does not satisfies the implication? Where is the error in my demonstration?
