That hardly proves that that limit does not exist, as WM claims.

Each of the infinitely many terms of f(n) = (n-1)/n fails to reach the

Each of those infinitely many finite initial segments of naturals fails
to reach the limit, but that limit exists in ZF, and in any sane set
theory that I am familiar with.
