Well, if you think the lim sup might be, for example, 2 [mind you, I'm not saying it is], you would have to show two things:

1. 2 is an upper bound for your set of numbers
2. No number less than 2 is an upper bound for your set of numbers.

In other words, you use the definition. What is your opinion in regard to 2 being the sup? And why? That might get you thinking about what you need to do.
