Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because what is less than 5? 6 < 5 and 7 < 5 etc. Okay, now tell me why the last one is NOT the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because they're not all positive numbers ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1?? No, it includes 6, doesn't it? We already established that 6 < 5. Okay, how about the number 9. Is 9 > 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does the third set contain 9?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Try again. The third set is finite and contains no integer greater than 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think the answer is {−5, −4, −3, …} or the last one...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We certainly ruled out the other three! Good work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it is {−5, −4, −3, …} !!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hold on. I didn't see the fourth one correctly. It does NOT contain 6. It is only POSITIVE numbers. It's problem is twofold. 1) It contains nonintegers, like 3/2 and \(\sqrt{2}\) 2) It fails to contains 3, whcih clearly is greater than 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what does that mean.... ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nothing new. We ruled it out incorretly, before, but we just ruled it out correctly, so it's still gone and #2 is still the right one. Sorry for confusion.
