    In a function, each value of the domain can only appear one. Each value of the range can appear many times.

    This is a very strange question and you should write it exactly how it is asked because this does not make sense... Domain is a set, Range is a set. They do not take on values. I think what you mean is Can one element from the domain map to more that one element in the range. The answer is NO. By definition, a function must be well defined. That means that each input must map to a unique output.
