a) f(x) = 1-x
b) f(x) = 1-x^2
c) f(x) = x^2 - (1-x)^2
d) f(x) = x^2 (1-x)^2
e) f(x) = x / (1-x)

I think this is a GMAT Club question.

F(x) = $$x^2*(1-x)^2$$
Now lets find out what is F(1-x) by substituting 1-x for x in the above equation.

F(1-x) = $$(1-x)^2*(1-(1-x))^2 = (1-x)^2*(x)^2 = (x)^2*(1-x)^2$$
So both F(X) and F(1-x) are same

D.

1-x =/ 1-(1-x)

1-x^2 =/ 1-(1-x)^2

(1-x)^2-(1-(1-x))^2 --> (1-x)^2-x^2 close but not equal to x^2-(1-x)^2

(1-x)^2(1-(1-x)^2 --> (1-x)^2*x^2

Thus D.
