Question 12:

Let and . Find whether the following subsets of are functions from X to Y or not.






(i) is not function

(ii) is function

(iii) is function

(iv) is not function

Question 13:

If functions and satisfy , then show that f is one-one and is onto.



In order to prove that f is one-one, it is sufficient to prove that

Let such that . Then,

Thus, f is one-one.

Now, in order to prove that is onto, it is sufficient to prove that each element in A has pre-image in B.

Let .

Also, is a function



Thus, for every there exists such that .

is onto.

Question 14:

Let be the function defined by . Then, find the range of .


Question 15:

Let be a fixed positive integer. Define a relation R in Z as follows: if and only if is divisible by . Show that R is an equivalence relation.


In order to show R is an equivalence relation we need to show R is Reflexive, Symmetric and Transitive.

Given that, , if and only if is divisible by n.


is divisible by .

is divisible by

Thus, R is reflexive on Z.

R is Symmetric if

is divisible by n

for some

is divisible by

Thus, R is symmetric on Z.

R is Transitive if

is divisible by

for some

is divisible by

for some




is divisible by n.

Thus, R is transitive on Z.

Since R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive it is an equivalence relation on Z.
