I mean how to write this exactly? It's a bit hard question so even if you prove/disprove just 1 of out 6 it would be helpful. The question goes: Prove or disprove with a counter example: (1) f, g : R → R are even functions => f ∘ g is even. (2) f : R → R is even , g : R → R is odd => f ∘ g is even. (3) g : R → R is even , f : R → R can be any function => f ∘ g is even (4) f, g : R → R are monotonically increasing functions => f ∘ g is a monotonically increasing function. (5) f, g : R → R are monotonically decreasing functions => f ∘ g is a monotonically decreasing function. (6) f : R → R is an inversible and monotonically increasing function => f^-1 (the inverse function) is monotonically increasing function. *Number 6 was particularly difficult. Thank you all the forum genius guys and girls!

If you haven't learned it yet, you'll need to use something like $f^{-1}(f(x)) = x$.
