  • 1.A function f on set A is one-one ie $f(x)=f(y)=>x=y \qquad x,y \in A$
  • 2.A function f on set A is onto if for every $y \in A$ than exist $ x\in A$ such that $f(x)=y$
  • 3.A function is bijective if it is both one-one and onto
(ii)$g(x)=|x| \qquad a \in [-1,1]$
Let $x_1=-1\;and \; x_2=1$
but $x_1 \neq x_2$
Hence g is not a one one function
Consider y=-1 we cannot find any no. $ x \in A$ such that $g(x)=y=-1$
modulus of a number is always positive
Therefore g is neither one -one nor onto
