    I said natural numbers but it was wrong :(

    {1, 2, 3 . . . 100} is finite because there are only 100 elements

    empty set has no elements, so that's finite so that's out

    the set of whole numbers less than one billion has a billion elements, so it's a lot, but still finite

    the set of natural numbers has infinitely many elements because if you claim it has finitely many elements, then you would have to point out the largest element (since this set is ordered) but there is no largest element because whatever you say is the largest, I can point out that there is a larger number

    so that's why "the set of natural numbers" has infinitely many elements
