  • The given set of ordered pair subset of $x \times y$ function if same element $a \in x$ is not mapped on to two different elements of y
  • The subset of $x \times $ is a function if it defines a mapping for each element of x an element of y
(i) $f=\{(1,4), and (1,5),(2,4),(3,5)\}$
Since (1,4) and (1,5) both belong to f the same element $1 \in X$ is mapped to two different elements in y, f is not a function.

hence f is not a function.
