Theorem

Let $T = \left({S, \tau}\right)$ be a topological space.

Let $V$ be a closed set of $T$.


Then it is not necessarily the case that $V$ is a $G_\delta$ set of $T$.


Proof

Let $T = \left({S, \tau}\right)$ be a finite complement topology on an uncountable set $S$.

Let $V$ be a closed set of $T$.

From Closed Set of Uncountable Finite Complement Topology is not $G_\delta$:

$V$ is not a $G_\delta$ set of $T$.

Hence the result.
