**Question 21**:

Let . Then, discuss whether the following functions defined on A are one-one, onto or bijective:

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

(iv)

**Answer**:

(i) is one-one but not onto

(ii) is neither one-one nor onto

(iii) is bijective,

(iv) is neither one-one nor onto.

**Question 22**:

Each of the following defines a relation on **N**:

(i) is greater than

(ii)

(iii) is square of an integer

(iv) .

Determine which of the above relations are reflexive, symmetric and transitive.

**Answer**:

(i) Transitive

(ii) Symmetric

(iii) Reflexive, symmetric and transitive

(iv) Transitive.

**Question 23**:

Let and R be the relation in defined by for in . Prove that R is an equivalence relation and also obtain the equivalent class .

**Answer**:

**Question 24**:

Using the definition, prove that the function is invertible if and only if is both one-one and onto.

**Answer**:

is one-one if the images of distinct elements of A under f are distinct, i.e.. , for every ,

We suppose that is not one-one function.

Let and

and

Inverse function cannot be defined as we have two images ‘a’ and ‘b’ for one pre-image ‘x’ .

So, f can be invertible if it is one-one.

Now, suppose that is not onto function.

Let and range of

We can observe that ‘z’ does not have any pre-image in A.

But has z as a pre-image which does not have any image in A.

So, f can be invertible if it is onto.

Hence, f is invertible if and only if it is both one-one and onto.

**Question 25**:

Functions are defined, respectively, by , find
