    Counting := assigning natural numbers to the elements of a given set in incrementing order. I'll take a) as an example: 1/4 -> 1, 1/8 -> 2, 1/16 -> 3, 1/32 -> 4; so there are 4 elements. Now do that for the other 3.

    A is finite because there are only four number 1/4 1/8 1/16 1/32. B is infinity because there could be infinity decimal fraction
