This set of Mathematics Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Functions”.

1. In a function from set A to set B, every element of set A has___________ image in set B.

a) one and only one

b) different

c) same

d) many

View Answer

Explanation: A relation from a set A to a set B is said to be a function if every element of set A has one and one image in set B.

2. In a function from set A to set B, image can have more than one preimage.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: A relation from a set A to a set B is said to be a function if every element of set A has one and one image in set B. A preimage must have one image, an image can have more than one preimage.

3. Let R be a relation defined on set of natural numbers {(x, y): y=2x}. Is this relation can be called a function?

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: Since every natural number has one and only image so this relation can be called a function.

4. Which of the following is not a function?

a) {(1,2), (2,4), (3,6)}

b) {(-1,1), (-2,4), (2,4)}

c) {(1,2), (1,4), (2,5), (3,8)}

d) {(1,1), (2,2), (3,3)}

View Answer

Explanation: A relation from a set A to a set B is said to be a function if every element of set A has one and one image in set B.

In {(1,2), (1,4), (2,5), (3,8)}, since element 1 has two images 2 and 4 which is not possible in a function so, it is not a function. Rest all have one and only one image so they can be called a function.

5. Which function is shown in graph?

a) Constant

b) Modulus

c) Identity

d) Signum function

View Answer

Explanation: {(1,1), (2,2), (3,3), …..}. This function involves relation {(x, y): y=x} which is involved in identity function. So, above function is identity function.

6. Which function is shown in graph?

a) Constant

b) Modulus

c) Identity

d) Signum function

View Answer

Explanation: {(1,5), (2,5), (3,5),……}. This function involves relation {(x, y): y=constant} which is involved in constant function. So, above function is constant function.

7. Which function is shown in graph?

a) Constant

b) Modulus

c) Identity

d) Signum function

View Answer

Explanation: {(-1,1), (1,1), (-2,2), (2,2), (-3,3), (3,3), ……}. This function involves relation {(x, y): y = |x|} which is involved in modulus function. So, above function is modulus function.

8. f(x) = {\(\frac{|x|}{x}\) for x≠0 and 0 for x=0}. Which function is this?

a) Constant

b) Modulus

c) Identity

d) Signum function

View Answer

Explanation: f(x) = {\(\frac{|x|}{x}\) for x≠0 and 0 for x=0}. Function is {(-3, -1), (-2, -1), (-1,1), (0,0), (1,1), (2,1), (3,1), …….}. This is signum function.

9. Find domain of function |x|.

a) Set of real numbers

b) Set of positive real numbers

c) Set of integers

d) Set of natural numbers

View Answer

Explanation: Since the above function can have all real values of x. So, domain is set of real numbers.

10. Find range of function |x|.

a) Set of real numbers

b) Set of positive real numbers

c) Set of integers

d) Set of natural numbers

View Answer

Explanation: Since the above function can have positive real value of y for all real values of x. So, range is set of positive real numbers.

11. f(x) = \(\sqrt{9-x^2}\). Find the domain of the function.

a) (0,3)

b) [0,3]

c) [-3,3]

d) (-3,3)

View Answer

Explanation: We know radical cannot be negative. So, 9-x,

^{2}≥ 0

(3-x) (3+x) ≥ 0 => (x-3) (x+3) ≤ 0 => x∈[-3,3].

12. f(x) = \(\sqrt{9-x^2}\). Find the range of the function.

a) R

b) R^{+}

c) [-3,3]

d) [0,3]

View Answer

Explanation: We know, square root is always non-negative. So, \(\sqrt{9-x^2}\) ≥ 0. So, the range of the function is set of positive real numbers from 0 to 3.
