    Plato might be a bit blunt but he has a point. What have you done? What do you know?

    What does it mean for a set to be countably infinite (your second sentence is more or less a definition which should allow you to do 1 and 3 without much thought)

    Question 2 should be just like at least one example that will have been covered in your lectures.

    So apparently you don't know what "defensive" means! There was nothing in Plato's post that was defensive: he was not defending anything he had already said or done because he had not said or done everything. Your post, on the other hand, is very defensive because you are defending your first post.
