A “correct” but unintelligible answer is a wrong answer. 1. Prove the following. Theorem. Let ( X,d ) be a metric space. K X is closed iff, for any x X , if x is a limit point of K then x K . 2. Prove the following. Theorem. Let ( X,d X ) and ( Y,d Y ) be metric spaces. Fix y * Y and let f : X Y be the constant function defined by, for all x X , f ( x ) = y * . Then f is continuous. 3. Prove the following. Theorem. Let ( X,d X ) and ( Y,d Y ) be metric spaces. f : X Y is continuous iff, for any
