A subset $S$ of $N$ is infinite if and only if A) $S$ is not bounded below. B) $S$ is not bounded above. C) $\displaystyle \ni $ $n_0$ $\displaystyle \epsilon $ $N$ such that $\displaystyle \forall $ $n$ $\displaystyle \geq $ $n_0$ , $n$ $\displaystyle \epsilon $ $S$. D) $\displaystyle \forall $ $a$ $\displaystyle \epsilon $ $S$, $\displaystyle \ni $ $x$ $\displaystyle \epsilon $ $N$ such that $x < a$. As $N$ is an infinite set which is not bounded above, I'm thinking as it's subset should also possess the same property to be an Infinite set. Correct me If I'm wrong

I think you are correct.
