a) Show that a closed interval [a,b] is a G set

b) Show that the half-open interval (a,b] is both a G and an F set.

c) Show that Q is an F set and the set of irrationals I forms a G set.

a) Let [a,b] be a closed interval.

Well, I know a set is closed if it contains all its limit points

I'm kinda confused on this whole idea.
