Exactly. I agree with @drhab and I think OP misunderstood the question.

I bet you meant "Finally, (c) is clearly false."?

comment Inequality proof by induction, what to do next in the step
It's not extremely easy to see that $$2\left(\sqrt{n+2}-\sqrt{n+1}\right) = \frac{2}{\sqrt{n+2}+\sqrt{n+1}},$$ though.

comment Let $T : V \rightarrow V$ be a linear operator. If $T^n = O_V$ for some $n \ge 1$, prove that $I_V + T$ is an isomorphism.
Hint: use \left( and \right) for larger brackets when using exponents.

comment How do I simplify $p^8-Q^8$?
Though this is probably what's intended, I'm not sure if factoring symplifies it.

Right, but then $73939133$ obviously is not the biggest prime you'll yield.

I guess the prime you start with can only have one digit?

comment Proving there are no integer solutions for $3x^2=9+y^3$
Thanks. I would never write a proof like my second one here on an actual contest or exam, but I've seen proofs to other problems that don't go into much detail at all (which I tried to mimic with my second proof).

comment How many ways can $2m$ be represented as the sum of 4 natural numbers $\le m$?
Is this homework? Then please add the homework tag. Also, could you quote the original problem word for word? The question as it is now is a bit vague.
