ANSWER

Given,

the function f(x)=x

2

−x+1

f(x)=x

−x+1

f

(x)=2x−1

f

′

(x)>0, ∀x∈(

,1) [∵f

′

(x)>0⇒ strictly increasing]

f

′

(x)<0,∀x∈(0,

2

1

) [∵f

′

(x)<0⇒ strictly decreasing]

clearly,

we can see that

f(x) is strictly increasing in the interval (

,1)

f(x) is strictly decreasing in the interval (0,

)

∴f(x) is neither increasing nor decreasing on the whole interval (0,1)
