$\displaystyle A\rightarrow$ not absolutely $\displaystyle A$

(2) So what, false, false. The irrational numbers are by definition the limit of sequences of rationals.

The LIMIT of an infinite binary digit is a real number. Cantor does not consider the set of limits of infinite binary digits, he considers the set of infinite binary digits, which are rational numbers, which are countable.

101010......... makes no sense if there is a largest natural number. Do you happen to know what it is? Presumably all binary digits of an infinite binary sequence are known, otherwise it would make no sense to speak of AN infinite binary sequence.
