    Is it possible that function is even as well as decreasing in its domain?

    depends on the definition of decreasing ...

    the def. used in my calculus text is ...

    a function is decreasing if for b > a , then f(a) \ge f(b)

    technically, any constant function would be even and satisfy this definition.
