Show that there is either an increasing sequence or a decreasing sequence of points $x_n$ in A with $lim_{n\rightarrow \infty} x_n=a$.
Let a be a set accumulation point $A$ subset of $\mathbb{R}$. Show that there is either an increasing sequence or a decreasing sequence of points $x_n$ in A with $lim_{n\rightarrow \infty} x_n=a$.
Could I have an answer in detail (especially the build of that sequences), please?

Answers can be viewed only if
 The questioner was satisfied and accepted the answer, or
 The answer was disputed, but the judge evaluated it as 100% correct.

Could you rewrite the proof, just in the first case, and build xn1, xn2 and xn3 explicitly, please? (Specially, I didn't get how does 1/n(k+1)<xn(k+1)a works )
The answer is accepted.
