I have question about example illustration Convergence of random variables in probability but not almost surely.
Suppose a person takes a bow and starts shooting arrows at a target. Let $X_n$ be his score in $n$-th shot. Initially he will be very likely to score zeros, but as the time goes and his archery skill increases, he will become more and more likely to hit the bullseye and score $10$ points. After years of practice the probability that he hit anything but $10$ will be getting increasingly smaller and smaller and will converge to $0$. Thus, the sequence $X_n$ converges in probability to $X = 10$.
Note that $X_n$ does not converge almost surely however. No matter how professional the archer becomes, there will always be a small probability of making an error. Thus the sequence $(X_n)$ will never turn stationary: there will always be non-perfect scores in it, even if they are becoming increasingly less frequent.
For me this example is true. But not for 22.214.171.124. Why? You have any idea?
