c. If the function f+g:R -> R and g:R -> R are continuous, then f:R -> R is also continuous.

d. Every function f:N -> R is continuous, where N denotes the set of natural numbers.

I think that (a) and (c) are true by the definition of continuity. If either f:R -> R or g:R -> R, then according to the definition of continuity, f+g cannot be continuous.

I am unsure about how (b) and (d) are to be done. Any suggestions?
