with that notation fog is not a function, gof is a function from A (to B thence) to C. but that is jsut the notational convention: functions read from right ot left. the inverse part *is* wrong. firstly that isn't function, never mind one that posses an inverse (which a function) may or may not do. So it's hard to find a counter example given that.

erm, counter example to what? g sends an element of B to an element in C, right? You cannot then follow that with a function from A to anywhere since C is not necessarily a subset of A. counter example is any function g where its image does not lie in the domain of f.

this looks a lot like homework, so i think you should be able to find a counter example if you want to; i've given you the reason why it is not necessairly true
