What about $F=[0,1]$ and $Q=\mathbb Q$? – Asaf Karagila Aug 12 '11 at 4:53
$F$ might be a nowhere dense set. – Leitingok Aug 12 '11 at 4:55
I can't. answer the question. it's as difficult as the oringal question for me. – Leitingok Aug 12 '11 at 5:12
Hint: Lebesgue density theorem. – Zarrax Aug 12 '11 at 5:21
choose an $x\in F$ with density 1 , and so on? – Leitingok Aug 12 '11 at 6:48
