Did you spend more than a second thinking about it? The proof is completely and utterly mindbogglingly trvial.
It relies on a few deep observations. Say f : X > Y and A is a subset of Y. Say x is an element of x.
(i) Exactly one of the following holds: f(x) is in A, f(x) is not in A.
(ii) f(x) is not in A if and only if f(x) is in Y \ A.
