in your function $[2,0]$ all maps to the value 0. Functions that have inverses must be injective, i.e they must be one to one. The function shown has no inverse.

@romsek if you click the gyazo it shows you a graph and you need to draw the inverse of it

yes but you are still required inverse even if it does not ie swap the value around to make another line
