How do you get that there would be 34 elements remaining with order 5?

comment Showing a compact metric space has a countable dense subset
I'm struggling with why $d(x,y)$ has to be less than $1/n$. If the definition of a dense set just requires that another point of $D$ lie in some open neighbourhood of $x \in X$, couldn't it be possible that $y$ is still in $B(x,\epsilon)$ but that the distance between the two points is not less than $1/n$?

To generalize, do I just take all divisors of $n$? If every nontrivial element has the same order, then it must be a $p$-group because the only divisors of $p$ are $1$ and $p$ itself (this means the group $G$ in my problem is certainly not a $p$-group). Is this correct?

could we say it has an element of order 2, 3, and 5? $x^6 = (x^2)^3 = (x^3)^2$, and similarly for $x^{10}$. I know that doesn't say much about $G$, but I'm just trying to figure out what more can be said.

@MartinArgerami Aren't they saying the same thing? Sorry, I was trying to be more formal about it. Thanks for pointing it out
