False.

#### Work Step by Step

A rational function is defined by $f(x)=\displaystyle \frac{p(x)}{q(x)}$, where $p(x)$ and $q(x)$ are polynomial functions and $q(x)\neq 0$. An exponential function with base a is defined as $f(x)=a^{x}$, where $a>0$ and $a\neq 1$ $....................................$ For example, $f(x)=\displaystyle \frac{x}{x-1}$ is a rational function. It, however, is not an exponential function (can not be written in the form $f(x)=a^{x}$). The statement is false.
