# Excluded Point Topology is Open Extension Topology of Discrete Topology

## Theorem

Let $S$ be a set and let $p \in S$.

Let $\tau_{\bar p}$ be the excluded point topology on $S$.

Let $T = \left({S \setminus \left\{{p}\right\}, \vartheta}\right)$ be the discrete topological space on $S \setminus \left\{{p}\right\}$.

Then $T^* = \left({S, \tau_{\bar p}}\right)$ is an open extension space of $T$.

## Proof

Directly apparent from the definitions of excluded point topology, discrete topological space and open extension space.
