I need to show if the finite complement topology,T_3, and the topology having all sets (inf,a) = {xx<a} as basis ,T_5, are comparable.
I've shown that T_3 is not strictly finer than T_5. But I'm not sure about other case. I need help.

I presume you're defining these topologies on R and that you managed to find a set in T_5 that's not in T_3. The other direction is just as easy: is R\{0} in T_5?

R\{0} is not in T_5. (inf,0]U[0,inf)
If T_4 is the upper limit topology, having the sets (a,b] as a basis and T_2 the topology of R_K (a,b)K K = 1/n n in Z. I've shown that T_2 is not strictly finer than T_4. How do I show that T_4 is strictly finer than T_2?

finite complement topology
And most importantly, why is R\{1,2,3} considered a basis element for T_3?
It's not finite, nor is it all of R. I'm confused with the definition of a finite complement topology.

Is {1} = (0,2) ?
and R\{0} = (inf,0]U[0,inf) ?

Note: I have merged your two threads on this since you had already received responses in the Calc and Analysis forum.
