Did I get these practice questions right?

1. Suppose that f is an even function whose domain is the set of all real numbers. Then which of the following can we claim to be true?

***The function f has an inverse f –1 that is even.
The function f has an inverse f –1, but we can't tell whether it's even or odd.
The function f has an inverse f –1, but we can't tell whether it's even or odd.
f –1 is not a function.
We can't tell whether or not f has an inverse.

2. Suppose that f is an odd function whose domain is the set of all real numbers. Then which of the following can we claim to be true?
(Points : 1)
The function f has an inverse f –1 that is even.
***The function f has an inverse f –1 that is odd.
The function f has an inverse f –1, but we can't tell whether it's even or odd.
The function f does not have an inverse.
We can't tell whether f has an inverse that's still a function.

#1. f^-1 is not a function
Think of y = x^2
every value of y has two values of x.

#2 correct

Hmm... Okay! I see how that works now! :) Thank you so much! I'll be posting a few more problems and would appreciate if you could help with those, too!
