    ? Let X:={a,b,c} be a set of three elements. A certain topology of X contains (among others) the sets {a}, {b}, and {c}. List all open sets in the topology T.
    ? Let X':={a,b,c,d,e} be a set of five elements. A certain topology T' on X' contains (among others) the sets {a,b,c}, {c,d} and {e}. List any other open set in T' which you know must be there. Also name one subset of X' which may or may not be open.
