I am aware a set is Bounded if it has both upper and Lower bound and i know what a Limit point of a set is but how can i show that If S ⊂ R be a "bounded infinite set", then S' ≠∅

By S', do you mean the set of all limit points of S?

Okay, here is a proof.

Construct a sequence with elements in S such that all terms are different. This should be possible because S is infinite. Now, because this sequence is bounded, it must have a convergent subsequence which is non-constant.

Hence, it follows that S' is non-empty.
