Consider $X=\{2,3,4\}$. This set has some interesting properties:

- The number of even numbers in $X$ is 2, an even number
- The number of odd numbers in $X$ is 1, an odd number
- The number of primes in $X$ is 2, a prime
- The number of squares in $X$ is 1, a square

We might wonder if this example can be extended to any number of such similar "properties." Hence:

**Question**:

Suppose $\mathcal{A} = \{A_1,A_2,\ldots,A_k\} \subseteq 2^{\mathbb{N}}$ is a finite family of infinite subsets of nonnegative integers (that is, each $A_i$ is infinite). Does there exist $X \subseteq \mathbb{N}$ such that $|A_i \cap X| \in A_i$ for all $i=1,\ldots,k$?

Note that it is not necessarily the case that such an $X$ exists if the $A_i$ are allowed to be finite, even if $\mathcal{A}$ satisfies the following obvious necessary condition:

- $\mathrm{min}(A) \leq |A|$ for all $A \in \mathcal{A}$ (where $\mathrm{min}(\emptyset):=\infty$);

consider the example $\mathcal{A}=\{\{1\},\{2,4\},\{1,2,4\}\}$.

Also note that there is not necessarily such an $X$ if $\mathcal{A}$ itself is allowed to be infinite, as in the example $\mathcal{A}=\{A_1,A_2,\ldots\}$ where $A_i =\{i,i+1,i+2,\ldots\}$.
