Question

Ted was now curious to find the largest number. He asked 1, “Who is the largest number here?” 1 replied, “I don’t know, ask 2.”
Ted went to 2 who told him to ask 3. Similarly, every number asked Ted to ask the next greater number. After asking a lot of numbers he realized:



Your Answer
A

Your Answer
B

that largest number must be invisible     

Your Answer
C

that numbers are pranking him      

Correct Answer
D

he can never find the largest number because every number keeps telling to ask the next greater number


Solution

The correct option is D

he can never find the largest number because every number keeps telling to ask the next greater number


Since every number tells Ted to ask the next number, Ted will never be able to find the largest number. This is because there will always be a number larger than the largest number. That’s why it is said that there are infinite natural numbers.
