Sure. Multiple values are returned within a list. For example

In[1]:=
Solve[x^2 - 4 == 0, x]

Out[1]=
{{x -> -2}, {x -> 2}}

In[2]:=
NestList[#1^2 & , 2, 3]

Out[2]=
{2, 4, 16, 256}

In[3]:=
PrimeQ[Range[10]]

Out[3]=
{False, True, True, False, True, False, True, False,
False, False}

Best regards,
Jean-Marc
