(3) (22 marks) Let A ⊂ R . (a) (3 marks) Explain what it means to say that x ∈ R is a cluster point (a.k.a. limitpoint; accumulation point) of A . (b) (3 marks) Explain what it means to say that the set A is bounded . (c) Now let S = { x ∈ R : x is a cluster point of A } . (i) (8 marks) Show that S is a closed set. (ii) (8 marks) Suppose A is bounded. Show that S is a compact set. [END OF PAPER]...
