Preimage of arbitrary subgroup.

  1. Apr 27, 2014 #1
    Suppose θ: A → B is a homomorphism. And assume S ≤ B. Is it necesarily true that if S is a subgroup, that is not completely contained in the range, its preimage forms a subgroup?

    I used subgroup criterion test, and it should be a subgroup. But i just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything trivial.

    You didn't. It's a subgroup indeed!
