Solve this following


Let $f: \mathrm{R} \rightarrow \mathrm{R}$ be defined as $f(\mathrm{x})=2 \mathrm{x}-1$ and

$g: R-\{1\} \rightarrow R$ be defined as $g(x)=\frac{x-\frac{1}{2}}{x-1}$

Then the composition function $f(\mathrm{~g}(\mathrm{x}))$ is :


  1. onto but not one-one

  2. both one-one and onto

  3. one-one but not onto

  4. neither one-one nor onto

Correct Option: 3,


$f(\mathrm{~g}(\mathrm{x}))=2 \mathrm{~g}(\mathrm{x})-1=2\left(\frac{2 \mathrm{x}-1}{2(\mathrm{x}-1)}\right)-1$


Range of $f(\mathrm{~g}(\mathrm{x})=\mathbb{R}-\{1\}$

Range of $f(\mathrm{~g}(\mathrm{x}))$ is not onto

$\& f(g(x))$ is one-one

So $f(g(x))$ is one-one but not onto.
