Y continuous. If C ¡ X is connected, then f ( C ) is connected. Example 8.1.1 Let f S i g ;i 2 I; be a collection of connected subsets of a space X . Suppose there exists an i 2 I such that for each i 2 I , the sets S i and S i have non-empty intersection. Show that [ i 2 I S i is connected. Solution: Assume it is not true. Let U; V be nonempty separated sets in X with U [ V = [ i 2 I S i ; U \ V = U \ V = ; . We can show that for every i , U \ S i = S i or U \ S i = ; . To see this, note that U \ V = ; ) ( U \ S i ) \ ( V \ S i ) ¡ U \ V = ; . Similarly, ( U \ S i ) \ ( V \ S i ) = ; . Since S i is connected for every i , we have S i \ U = ; or S i \ U = S i . Similarly, for every i , we also have V \ S i = S i or V \ S i = ; . Furthermore, since U; V 6 = ; , 9 m; n such that U \ S m = S n and V \ S n = S n . Since S m \ S i 6 = ; ) U \ S i 6 = ; ) U \ S i = S i and similarly we have V \ S i = S i . Hence we have U \ V 6 = ; . Contradiction....
