The only thing you show is that a finite number of natural numbers is never
enough to enumerate all rationals; nobody doubts that.
But for increasing n all rationals gets their index number.
There is an enumeration of the rationals for example the one given by Virgil:

All rationals get their index here. But, certainly, always for a
given finite natural number there is an infinity of rationals which
have indices larger than this number n. But this shows nothing.
Where have you used "real analysis"? I guess you mean "calculus".
Is anything wrong with "complex analysis", i.e. "theory of functions"?
In your new thread
"§ 523 Can the manner of marking influence the result?"
I see that you have given up, since you don't answer anymore.
Don't be sad:

What is now with your proof that the reals are countable:

Why you don't say if it is right or wrong? I'm just curious.
I thought this clears the problem.
