Consider with the hereditary topology from and check .

Or, let X be the set of

**rational**numbers with the "usual metric", d(x,y)= |x-y|. Take the sequence 3, 3.1, 3.14, 3.1415, 3.14159, 3.141592, ... where the nth term is the decimal expansion of to n-1 decimal places. It is easy to see that this sequence is a Cauchy sequence and that it does not converge in the rational numbers. - November 30th 2009, 04:54 PMtalb1mnk7Cauchy Sequences
