Hi Coco,

Yes, you could have a function like f(x) =2

the domain is all real numbers and the range is a single number

Hope this helps

There is a difference between bounded and finite. The range of the real sine function is the set of all reals from -1 to plus 1 inclusive, an infinite bounded set.

Yes. As an example of such a function, let the domain be the interval

[0,1] on the x-axis and let the function have the value 0 at each of the rational points of that interval and 1 at each of the irrational points.
