Taking this example, if I understand correctly, X_n does not converge almost surely (2) since it does not converge to a single value but rather keeps dividing the interval [0,1] into halfs, and "jumps back and forth" within the interval.
X_n does not converge in mean square to X (3) because of the same reason, namely the expected value of $$(X_n-X)^2$$ kepps changing as $${n \to \infty }$$.
However, I don't know how to show that X_n converges in probability.
