X R Y ⇔ X ∩ Y = X ⇒ Y ∩ X = X ⇒ Y R X.
Hence, symmetric.

15. State the reason for the relation R in the set {1, 2, 3} given by R = {(1, 2), (2, 1)} not to be transitive. [NCERT; Delhi 2011]
(1, 2) ∈ R, (2, 1) ∈ R, but (1, 1) ∉ R.

Given R = {(1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (1, 2), (2, 3)} defined on R: {1, 2, 3} → {1, 2, 3}
For reflexive: As (1, 1), (2,2), (3, 3) ∈ R. Hence, reflexive
For symmetric: (1, 2) ∈ R but (2, 1) ∉ R. Hence, not symmetric.
For transitive: (1, 2) ∈ R and (2, 3) ∈R but (1, 3) ∉ R. Hence, not transitive.

We notice for no value of a, b s A, a-b = 10. Hence, (a, b) £ R for a, b e A. Hence, empty relation.

26. If n(A) = p, then number of bijective functions from set A to A are ______ ..
p!, as for bijective functions from A to B, n(A) = n(B) and function is one-one onto.

27. The function f : R → R defined as f(x) = [x], where [x] is greatest integer ≤ x, is onto function. State true or false.
False, as range of f is set of integers, i.e.
Z and range of f ⊆ co-domain R. Hence,not onto e.g. for 12 ∈ R (co-domain) there is no x ∈ R (domain) such that y = f(x) or 12 e∈ R has no pre-image.

28. If $$f(x)=\frac{x-1}{|x-1|}, x(\neq 1) \in R$$ then range of ‘f’ is _______ .

30. If f is an invertible function defined as f(x) = 3x−45, write f-1(x).

31. Let A = {1, 2, 3}, B = {4, 5, 6, 7} and let f = {(1, 4), (2, 5), (3, 6)} be a function from A to B. State whether f is one-one or not. [AI 2011] f
Explanation: One-one, as for x1 ≠ x2
f(x1) ≠ f(x2).

32. Let f : R → R is defined by f (x) = | x |. Is function f onto? Give a reason. [HOTS]
f is not onto, as for some y ∈ R from co-domain, there is no x ∈ R from domain such that y = f(x), e.g. for -2 ∈ R (co-domain) there is no x ∈ R (domain) such that f(x) = -2, i.e. |x| = -2. Hence, not onto.

33. If f : R → R and g : R → R are given by f (x) = sin x and g(x) = 5x², find gof(x).
gof(x) = g(f(x)) = g(sin x) = 5 sin² x.

gof: {1, 3, 4} → {1, 3}.
gof(1) = g(f(1)) = g(2) = 3.
gof(3) = g(K3)) = g(5) = 1
gof(4) = g(f(4)) = g(1) = 3
gof = {(1, 3), (3, 1), (4, 3)}.

35. Prove that f : R → R given by f(x) = x3 + 1 is one-one function.
Given f(x) = x3 + 1
For x1 ≠ x2
⇒ x13 ≠ x23
⇒ x13 + 1 ≠ x23 + 1
f(x1) ≠ f(x2). Hence, one-one

36. Show that the Signum Function f : R → R,

one-one nor onto.

Range of function is {-1, 0, 1} and co-domain is set of real numbers R.
⇒ Range ⊆ co-domain.
There is at least one element in R(codomain) which is not image of any element of the domain, e.g. for 2 e R(co-domain), there is no x in domain such that f(x) = 2, x ∈ R.
Hence, function is not onto.
Also, let x1 = 2 and x2 = 3 then f(x1) = 1 and f(x2) = 1
i.e., x1 ≠ x2f(x1) = f(x2).
So, function is not one-one.

Given f(x) = sin x check if function f is one-one for (i) (0, π) (ii) (-π2, π2).

38. If f : R → R is defined by f(x) = 3x + 2, define f (f(x)). [Foreign]
f(f(x)) = f(3x + 2) = 3(3x + 2) + 2
= 9x+ 8.

39. Write fog, if f : R → R and g : R → R are given by f(x) = |x| and g(x) = |5x – 2|. [Foreign]
(fog)(x) =f(g(x))
=f(|5x-2|) = ||5x-2||.

40. Write fog, if f : R → R and g : R → R are given by f(x) = 8x3 and g(x) = x1/3. [Foreign]
