Consider the following two functions press : D ⇒ P where  pres(d)  is the name of the president of the U.S. on date  d  (the incumbent on inauguration days, to avoid ambiguity) and   lady : P ⇒ F   where   lady(p)   is the name of the first lady of the U.S. during the presidency of president   P.

2. Which of the following functional inverses exist and which do not?

Thank you.
