Does there exist $x>2$ such that uncountably many reals have irrationality measure x? Must there exist at least one number of irrationality measure $x$?

the question you linked contains an answer: by Jarnik-Besikovitch theorem, the set of real numbers of any given irrationality measure has non-zero Haussdorff dimension, so it is uncountable (hence non-empty) – user8268 Jul 6 '12 at 8:47
