Prove limit point set is closed

Hi for this question my idea is too show that by the bolzano-waeirstrass theorem that there exists a convergent subsequence in the limitset Xnk that tends to Max{lim} so that subsequence converges to an element which is belongs to the limit point set.

What makes you think there's a max?

Also I didn't understand the notation Xnk.

It would be more clear if you would write this problem carefully, defining your notation ("Let X be a metric space or a topological space or a set of reals," etc.), state exactly what you are being asked to prove, and writing down your argument step by step.

Real analysis is as much to do with learning to write mathematics as it does with the actual content of the course.

And one of the tricks to doing proofs is to write down explicitly what you are being asked to prove. By the time you do that, the proof usually suggests itself.
