Trivial Topology, Continuity and Connectedness

Let X and Y be topological spaces, where the only open sets of Y are the empty set and Y itself, i.e., Y has the trivial topology.

1) Show that any map f:X->Y is continuous.
Recall, a map f:X->Y is continuous if for all open sets U in Y, f^(-1)(U) is open.
Since Y has the trivial topology, we only ...
