So the question was of two parts of which I proved the first one. The second part goes as follows: ck= 2^k for k is even and ck= 11/k for which k is odd. I have to prove that lim ck=1. I know that these two are subsequences and can prove for ck= 11/k approaches 1 but how to prove for ck=2^k? It would be of great help if someone could show this or overall how to solve this part.

$\displaystyle 2^k$ subsequence becomes infinite. There is something wrong with your statement of the problem.
