This topic came up while studying measures on sub-intervals of [0,1]. The collection of all intervals in [0,1] is a semi-algebra, say J. Now from finite disjoint union of members of J lets say we form a set A.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was able to prove that A is an algebra, since for any C,D ε A, C[itex]\cap[/itex]D and C[itex]^{c}[/itex] belong to A.

I'm not able to understand why A isn't a σ-algebra. Can anyone please outline a proof or give me a counter-argument.
