Correct. Note that this limit is a real number.

You do not define *this sequence*. If you mean the sequence of real
numbers you are incorrect. Set theory does say that there is
a limit of the set of digits to the left of the decimal place.
This limit is a set.

The limit is {}. {} is not a real number. {} does not have a
reciprocal

Two different limits which are not the same. No reason for them
to be the same. No contradiction.
