Default Exercise 2.1


For the convex set case, it seems to me that since N points on a circle can always be shattered, there's always at least one data set of size k that can be shattered by \mathcal{H}. Thus, the break point does not exist for this \mathcal{H}. So then you can't really verify that m_{\mathcal{H}}(k)< 2^k for this case - or can you say that it's trivially true since break point k doesn't even exist? Is this the correct interpretation of this exercise?
