1. If $\displaystyle f:[1,2] \rightarrow R $ is continuous and $\displaystyle f(1) < f(0) $, then A) $\displaystyle f([0,1]) \subseteq [f(1),f[0)]$. B) $\displaystyle f([0,1]) \supseteq [f(1),f[0)]$. C) $\displaystyle f([0,1]) = [f(1),f[0)]$. D) $\displaystyle f([0,1])$ need not be a closed interval. Please someone help to solve these kinds of problems like comparing two values

First, clearly determine the meaning of the notation. This is especially critical for A, B and C. Second, since D is significantly different than the rest, can you eliminate it or accept it?
