Method of solving this CAT Question from CAT Algebra - Functions: When will we have an invertible function ?

f(x) = f-1(x) when f(x) = x

=> $$frac{$x + 6$}{(x+2)}$ = x => x + 6 = x2 + 2x => x2 + x – 6 = 0 =>$x+3) (x-2) = 0
=> x = -3, 2

The question is "Find the value of x for which f(x) = f-1(x)?"

Hence the answer is "Both A and B"

Choice C is the correct answer.
