QUESTION: 1

### f: R x R → R such that f(x + iy) = Then, f is

Solution:

Since, f (x + iy) = f (x - iy)
∴f is many – one
Also, Range =R+and codomain = R.
∴Range ⊏codomain ⇒f is into.
Hence, f is many – one into.

QUESTION: 2

### Solution: QUESTION: 3

### Let f (x) = sinx + ax + b. Then f(x) = 0 has

Solution:

f'(x) = - cosx + a, if a>1,then f(x) entirely increasing. So f(x) =0 has only one real root, which is positive if f(0) < 0 and negative if f(0) > 0.
Similarly when a <-1. Then f(x) entirely decreasing. So f(x) has only one real root which is negative if f(0) < 0 and positive if f(0) > 0

If -2 < x < 7 and 3 < y < 5, then which of the following is true?

Solution:

-2<x<7 and 3<y<5. Hence, -4<2x<14-15<-3y<-9. Since the second inequality is multiplied by -3, the inequality changes.
Adding both the inequalities, we get, -19<(2x-3y)<5. Note that 2x-3y is calculated first because it is present in 2 options.
This makes the process of elimination faster.
