1) If A= {1, 2, 3, 3), then A is called _____

set.

(a) finite (b) infinite (c) set (d) not a set

2) If A = {x / x>0, x _____ elements.

Is it a finite set? not sure.

second questions got options such as - (a) 5 (b) 4 (c) 6 (d) none of the above.

The set is finite because you know how many terms the set comprises. The cardinality of the set A is 4 (there are 4 elements in the set).

For the second problem, you must consider the (b) option.

I should explain to you why you need to consider (b) option. Notice that the property of the elements of the set A claims that these elements x are larger than 0. Since the set A comprises the elements {1,2,3,3}, which are all positive, hence, counting the elements of the set A yields 4.

**Hence, the answer to the first question is (a) option: set A is finite and the answer to the second question is (b) option: the set A comprises 4 elements.**
