Question 01 (e) ii 

and its associated series . True or false: the series diverges. 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

The series is the same as a very wellknown series. 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. The series is
which is just the harmonic series. But the harmonic series diverges (say by using the pseries test if need be)! Note the difference between a sequence and a series. The statement is true.
