Pay attention, Mr Karzeddin, the point was about complex numbers, not relative interger. Nevertheless the *facts* are the same, they can both be constructed in a perfectly sound way. You may deny it while putting your hands on your ears crying "I do not hear! I do not hear!", that won't change anything about that.
