RECALL: (i) A function is a relation where every first coordinate $(x)$ is paired with exactly one second coordinate $(y)$. (ii) The y-intercept of a function is the point on the graph where $x=0$. The coordinates of the y-intercept is $(0, y)$., A function cannot have two y-intercepts because it would mean that the x-coordinate $0$ is paired with two different y-coordinates. Therefore, the given statement is false.
