hi vikram

to understand this you have to have a good knowledge of function and it''s inverse

the square root function( √x ) is actually inverse function of x 2

for a function to be invertible the function has to be bijective

and x is not bijective for whole of it''s domain - infinity to + infinity ( not onto )

so the domain has to be trimmed to 0 to + infinity [ 0 , infinity [

now when you inverse any function the domian becomes the range of the inverted function

so the range of  √x is [0 , + infinity [

But square root x has two values x and - x so it should not be a fiction
