1) For \(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={x}^{{2}}\)
\(\displaystyle{F}{\left(-{1}\right)}={\left(-{1}\right)}^{{2}}={1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{f{{\left({1}\right)}}}={1}^{{2}}={1}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}{1}\ne{x}{2},{b}{u}{t}{f{{\left({x}{1}\right)}}}={f{{\left({x}{2}\right)}}}\), so the function is not One-to-One, it doesn’t have an inverse.
2) For \(\displaystyle{g{{\left({x}\right)}}}={x}^{{3}}\)
\(\displaystyle{G}{\left(-{1}\right)}={\left(-{1}\right)}^{{3}}=-{1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{g{{\left({1}\right)}}}={1}^{{3}}={1}\)
\(\displaystyle{X}{1}\ne{x}{2}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{g{{\left({x}{1}\right)}}}\ne{g{{\left({x}{2}\right)}}}\), so function is One-to-One, it has an inverse.

a) There is no difference.
b) A function f has an absolute minimum at \(x=c\) if \(f(c)\) is the smallest function value on the entire domain.
c) A function f has an absolute minimum at \(x=c\) if \(f(c)\) is the smallest function value when x is near c, whereas f has a local minimum at c if \(f(c)\) is the smallest function value on the entire domain of f.
d) A function f has an absolute minimum at \(x=c\) if \(f(c)\) is the largest function value on the entire domain of f, whereas f has a local minimum at c if \(f(c)\) is the largest function value when x is near c.
e) A function f has an absolute minimum at \(x=c\) if \(f(c)\) is the largest function value when x is near c, whereas f has a local minimum at c if \(f(c)\) is the largest function value on the entire domain of f.
