Expert Answer

Step 1

Consider the given information:

The collection {{Iα}, where α belongs to A} of open intervals that are mutually disjoint.

Now, let S be the union of all such disjoint open interval:

Step 2

Since, all intervals are mutually disjoint, so above mentioned collection is a disjoint collection.

Now, to show that they form a countable collection:

Let {x1, x2, x3, ….} denote the countable set of rational numbers. In each interval say, Ix there will be infinitely many x, but among these there will be exactly one with...
