# Let f: R → R be defined as f(x) = x4. Choose the correct answer.A. f is one-one ontoB. f is many-one ontoC. f is one-one but not ontoD. f is neither one-one nor onto.

f: R R be defined as f(x) = x4.

Let x, y ϵ R such that f(x) = f(y)

x4 = y4

x = y

Therefore, f(x1) = f(x2) which does not implies x1 = x2.

For instance, f(1) = f(-1) = 1

Therefore, f is not one-one.

Now, an element 2 in co-domain R.

We can see that there does not exist any x in domain R such that

f(x) = 2

Therefore, f is not onto.

Therefore, function f is neither one-one nor onto.
