The notation f : A B means Exactly one option must be correct)
a)
the function f takes all elements of set A as inputs and produces all elements of set B as outputs.
b)
the function f takes all elements of set A as inputs and the outputs will always be in set B.
c)
the function f takes some subset of A as inputs and the outputs will always be in set B.
d)
the domain of the function f is A and its range is B.
e)
none of the above.

Choice (a) is incorrect
B is the codomain of f, so the range of f is a subset of B. The range is not necessarily equal to B.
Choice (b) is correct!
f : A B’ means that the function is properly defined on all elements of A and that its input values come from A. Its output values all lie in B ( the target set or codomain). However B need not be equal to the range. The range ( the set of values which f actually maps to ) is a subset of B and may be equal to B.
Choice (c) is incorrect
A is equal to the domain of f.
Choice (d) is incorrect
B is the codomain of f, not necessarily the range.
Choice (e) is incorrect
