    You are sort of muddling up domain and range. If f:A->B then H must be a subset of the range B, right? And if b is an element of B such that there is no a such that f(a)=b you are defining f^(-1)({b})={} (the empty set). Also correct? Then just consider any function that isn't onto. Any one. You pick.
