Please me to differentiate this with respect to (x): y=csc(2x^5). Thank you in advance

This involves a straightforward application of the Chain Rule. Differentiate the "outer" function, being the cosecant. Then multiply by the derivative of the next "layer", being the 2x^5.

For an example of the process, try this article.
