# Discuss the continuity of the function f, where f is defined by The given function is The function f is defined at all points of the real line.

Then, we have 5 cases i.e., k < 0, k = 0, 0 < k < 1, k = 1 or k < 1.

Now, Case I: k < 0

Then, f(k) = 2k = 2k= f(k)

Thus, Hence, f is continuous at all points x, s.t. x < 0.

Case II: k = 0

f(0) = 0 = 2 × 0 = 0 = 0 Hence, f is continuous at x = 0.

Case III: 0 < k < 1

Then, f(k) = 0 = 0 = f(k)

Thus, Hence, f is continuous in (0, 1).

Case IV: k = 1

Then f(k) = f(1) = 0 = 0 = 4 × 1 = 4 Hence, f is not continuous at x = 1.

Case V: k < 1

Then, f(k) = 4k = 4k = f(k)

Thus, Hence, f is continuous at all points x, s.t. x > 1.

Therefore, x = 1 is the only point of discontinuity of f.
