    I don't have your definition of G. (Assuming G c X is an open set.) You can directly apply the definition in this case. For the case of an intersection of a family of open sets, consider the family of open sets A where An = (-infinity, 1/n) and the family of open sets B where Bn = (-1/n, infinity). The intersection of all A and B is {0}, which is closed.
