It is a limit, but it has no decimal representation.

If it had a decimal representation, then it would be in the following
list which contains all decimal representations with the digit 1
having a finite index.

0.1
0.11
0.111
...

Or can you determine a finite index which is not occupied by a 1?

Being infinite is a valid mathematical notion, but it is not a means
to distinguish decimal representations. If there is a sequence of 1
larger than all sequences of the list (not only larger than every),
then let me know the difference by naming the indices. Otherwise stop
asserting unmathematical properties.

Regards, WM
