Clicker Question 1
Trying to make a sequence converge
Let {an } be a sequence that we hope converges. Each of these
statements might or might not be true:
I. Every term is larger than the previous one:
a1 &lt; a2 &lt; a3 &lt; &middot; &middot; &middot; .
II. All of the terms are real numbers between 1 and 8.
Which statement(s), if true, would always force {an } to
converge?
A. either one of I or II is enough to make {an } converge
B. I makes {an } converge, regardless of whether II is true
C. II makes {an } converge, regardless of whether I is true
D. nether I nor II makes {an } converge by itself, but together
I and II make {an } converge
E. even I and II together don’t make {an } converge
