IF S is the set of all x such that 0<= x <= 1, what points, if any, are points of accumulation of both S and the compliment of S, C(S).

I don't get this question, the answer looks like 0 and 1 but can somebody explain please !!!

0 and 1 would be accumulation points for the set 0<x<1, but this isn't the set you gave. If it is an accumulation point, this point isn't in the set, and the points you gave are inside of the set, so those can't be accumulation points. There are no accumulation points for S. Now think of the compliment.

okay then 0 and 1 would be accumulation points for the compliment I guess, and if there are no accumulation points for S there is no points of accumulation of both S and the compliment of S, C(S), huh?

Sorry. Plato is right.
