.

Assume $G$ is finite. For $x\in G$ construct $\left < x \right>$. Then, $|x| = |\left< x \right>|\leq |G|$.
Q2:Prove that (Q,+) is not isomorphic to (Q,*)?
There are two solutions to $x^2 = 1$ in the multiplicative group but only one solution to $2x=0$ in the additive one.

Q3:Prove that a cyclic group is isomorphic either to (Zn,+) for some positive integer n or to (Z,+) ?
If $G$ is infinite and $G = \left< a\right>$ then define $\phi : G\to \mathbb{Z}$ by $\phi(a^k) = k$ as the isomorphism. Be sure to argue this is well-defined.

If $G$ is finite and $G = \left< a\right>$ with $|G|=n$ then define $\phi : G\to \mathbb{Z}_n$ by $\phi (a^k) = [k]_n$. Be sure to argue this is well-defined.
