For your questions:

2) Can't be true, because if the probability of each point was 0 then nothing would have any chance of occurring, right?

1) I'm not sure about, I would like to think it's possible but I'm not sure I grasp the concept of "countably infinite."

The problem makes sense when I apply it, for example, the instruction "Pick a random positive integer" does not mean anything because there are an unlimited number of positive integers so it's not really possible to randomly pick one. There are some integers trillions of digits long, and I guess I could say the chances of one of those being picked is 0. But if the question doesn't make sense in the first place, I don't see why I have to analyze it.
