How to prove that the cardinality of the set of Borel sets is continuum? [duplicate]

Let $\mathscr{B}$ be the set of Borel sets on $R$, how to prove that $\overline{\overline{\mathscr{B}}}=\aleph$? That is , the cardinality of it is continuum?

About the cardinality of the Borelians in the real line. [duplicate]

Is true that the set of the Borelians in $\mathbb{R}$ has the same cardinality of $\mathbb{R}$? I need of the Continuum Hypothesis for to prove this?

Is there a $\sigma$-algebra on $\mathbb{R}$ strictly between the Borel and Lebesgue algebras?

So, after proving that $\mathfrak{B}(\mathbb{R})\subset \mathfrak{L}(\mathbb{R})$, I asked myself, and now asking you, is there a set $\mathfrak{S}(\mathbb{R})$, which satisfies: \mathfrak{B}(\...

Positive outer measure set and nonmeasurable subset

I'm attending a course of Measure and Integration and have some homework to do. We don't have a specific book to follow, neither for exercise. I'm asked to proof that every set $A \in R$ with ...

What's the difference between algebra and $\sigma$-algebra?

The title is quite misleading, I don't have a better one though. It's clear by definition that $\sigma$-algebra is also an algebra. Here is my question, for those algebras which are not $\sigma$-...

Is there a set $A \subset [0,1]$ such that both $A$ and $[0,1] \setminus A$ intersect every positive-measure set?

Is there a set $A \subset [0,1]$ such that for every Borel set $B \subset [0,1]$ of positive Lebesgue measure, both $B \cap A$ and $B \setminus A$ are non-empty? This is, in a sense, the "measure-...

Cardinality Of Borel Sets

I was trying to show that Borel $\sigma$ algebra is smaller than lebesgue measurable sets. I could come up with a proof for the cardinality of lebesgue measurable sets being $2^c$. Cardinality of ...

A set in a $\sigma$-algebra that can't be “reached” with countable set-theoretical operations

Can someone please give me an example of a set that lies in a $\sigma$-algebra generated by some set other then the $\sigma$-algebra itself, such that this (the first) set can't be obtained by ...

Borel sigma algebra - why smallest?

I was wondering why Borel algebra $B(X)$ is defined to be the smallest sigma algebra containing all open subsets of X. If it contains all the subsets, then how can any other sigma algebra have more ...

non-Borel subset of uncountable Tychonoff space

Let $X$ be an uncountable Tychonoff space. Must there exist a non-Borel subset of $X$?
Uniform versus product topologies on $[0,1]^\mathbb{N}$, and their Borel $\sigma$-algebras
Let $\tau_U$ and $\tau_P$ be the uniform (i.e. sup-metric) and product topologies on $[0,1]^\mathbb{N}$, respectively. Clearly, these topologies are not the same ($\tau_P$ is separable and $\tau_U$ ...
Suppose there is a function $f:A\to B$ where $A,\,B\subseteq\mathbb{R}$, is there any example for this function being NOT Borel function? Well the question came up to be when I was reading the ...
