Show the Annulus is polygonally path connected.

Hello, I am asked to show that the annulus A(0,r,R) is polygonally path connected.
For this question could i just give one specific example where i find points $w,z$in$U$ there are points $z=z_{0},z_{1},...z_{n}$=w where these points are contained inside the annulus? For example i could give a vector rotated by 2pi/n for n lots of z(points)

For the second part of the question i am asked to give a sketch of my points to show intuitively that it is polygonally path connected.

Thanks very much

Showing that an annulus is path connected is trivial.

Now try to show in general for an open subset of $\mathbb{R}^n$ that path connected is the same as polygonally connected. Do this by creating balls inside the open subset. A ball is convex.
