**Bounded Extension from Dense Subspace Theorem.** Suppose that $Μ$ is a dense subspace of a normed space $X$, that $Y$ is a Banach space, and that $T_0: Μ \to Y$ is a bounded linear operator. Then there is a unique continuous function $T: X \to Y$ that extends $T_0$. This function $Τ$ is a bounded linear operator, and $\|Τ\| = \|T_0\|$.

Megginson's Introduction to Banach Space Theory (and several other books) points out that if $M$ is not dense in $X$, then there might not exist a continuous extension of $T_0$ at all. The example given is this:

If $X=\ell^{\infty}$, $M=Y=c_0$, and $T_0 = Id:c_0 \to c_0$, then $T_0$ cannot be continuously extended to an operator from $X \to Y$.

However, verifying this example is not exactly trivial. Megginson obtains it as a corollary of non-trivial theorem of Philips which says:

$c_0$ is an uncomplemented closed subspace of $\ell^{\infty}.$

Philips original proof is difficult. A shorter but still non-trivial proof was published by Whitley. Megginson's book gives Whitely's proof and a precise reference.

Here is an answer that gives two other examples of closed uncomplemented subspaces of Banach spaces: https://math.stackexchange.com/a/108289/570438 . But again the proofs are not easy.

I wonder if these examples are a bit of overkill.

**Question A** Is there a simpler example of Banach spaces $X$ and $Y$, a non-dense subspace $M$ in $X$, and a bounded linear operator $T_0:M \to Y$ such that $T_0$ cannot be continuously extended to an operator from $X \to Y$? In particular, is there an example that doesn't require first showing that $M$ is uncomplemented in $X$?

**Question B** Suppose we have Banach spaces $X$ and $Y$, a non-dense subspace $M$ in $X$, and a bounded linear operator $T_0:M \to Y$ such that $T_0$ cannot be continuously extended to an operator from $X \to Y$. Does that imply $M$ is uncomplemented in $X$?
