Q12  Let A = {9,10,11,12,13} and let f : A$\rightarrow$ N be defined by f (n) = the highest prime
factor of n. Find the range of f.

It is given that   A = {9,10,11,12,13} And  f : A → N be defined by f(n) = the highest prime factor of n. Now, Prime factor of 9 = 3 Prime factor of 10 = 2,5 Prime factor of 11 = 11 Prime factor of 12 = 2,3 Prime factor of 13 = 13 f(n) = the highest prime factor of n. Hence, f(9) = the highest prime factor of 9 = 3 f(10) = the highest prime factor of 10 = 5 f(11) = the highest prime factor...

Q11  Let f be the subset of $Z \times Z$ defined by $f = \left \{ (ab, a + b) : a, b \epsilon Z } \right \}$ . Is f a
function from Z to Z? Justify your answer.

It is given that  Now, we know that relation f from a set A to a set B is said to be a function only if every element of set A has a unique image in set B  Now,  for value 2, 6, -2, -6  Now,  we can observe that same first element i.e. 12 corresponds to two different images that are 8 and -8. Thus, f   is not a function

It is given that      and  Now, As we can observe that same first element i.e. 2 corresponds to two different images that is 9 and 11. Hence f is not a function from A to B Therefore, given statement is FALSE

Q10 (1)  Let A ={1,2,3,4}, B = {1,5,9,11,15,16} and f = {(1,5), (2,9), (3,1), (4,5), (2,11)}
Are the following true?  f is a relation from A to B

It is given that      and  Now, Now, a relation from a non-empty set A to a non-empty set B is a subset of the Cartesian product A × B And we can see that f is a subset of  Hence  f is a relation from A to B  Therefore, given statement is TRUE

$( a,a ) \epsilon R ,$ implies (b,a)  $\epsilon$ R

It is given that And   implies  Now , it can be seen that    and  ,  But   Therefore,   Therefore,  given statement is FALSE

Q9 (1)  Let R be a relation from N to N defined by $R = \left \{ ( a,b): a,b \epsilon N \: \:and \: \: a = b ^ 2 \right \}$ . Are
the following true?

$( a,a ) \epsilon R ,$ for all $a \epsilon N$

It is given that And     for all    Now, it can be seen that    But,  Therefore, this statement is FALSE

Q8  Let f = {(1,1), (2,3), (0,–1), (–1, –3)} be a function from Z to Z defined by
