1. Consider a sequence of real numbers
{
x
n
}
n
∈
N
⊂
R
. Prove that if there
exists a subsequence of
{
x
n
}
n
∈
N
that converges to
b
∈
R
, then
lim inf
n
→∞
x
n
≤
b

3. Let
f
: [
a, b
]
→
R
be a continuous function, and consider
x
1
, x
2
∈
[
a, b
],
x
1
≤
x
2
,
y
∈
R
such that
f
(
x
1
)
≤
y
≤
f
(
x
2
)
.
Prove that there exists
c
∈
[
x
1
, x
2
] such that
f
(
c
) =
y
.
4. A point
a
∈
R
n
is called a boundary point of the set
A
⊂
R
n
if every
open ball centered at
a
intersects both
A
and
A
c
=
R
n
\
A
. The
boundary
of the set
A
is the set of all its boundary points. Prove that
