Best answer

Correct option   (B)(C)

Explanation:

(A) If function is one- one & onto then a = b since every element of set B should have exactly one pre-image in A.
(B) For one - one, into function, every element of set B should have either one pre-image or no pre-image in set A.
⇒ no. of elements in set B > no. of elements in A.
∴ b > a
(C) For many - one, onto function, every element of set B should have one or more than one pre-images in
A.  ⇒ n
(B) < n (A)
⇒ b < a or a > b
(D) For many - one, into function a ∈ R & b ∈ R.
