We give a “naive” (i.e., using no additional set-theoretic assumptions beyond ZFC, the Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms of set theory augmented by the Axiom of Choice) example of a Boolean topological group G
without infinite separable pseudocompact subsets having the following “selective” compactness property: For each free ultrafilter p
on the set
of natural numbers and every sequence
of non-empty open subsets of G
, one can choose a point
in such a way that the resulting sequence
has a p
-limit in G
; that is,
for every neighbourhood V
. In particular, G
is selectively pseudocompact (strongly pseudocompact) but not selectively sequentially pseudocompact. This answers a question of Dorantes-Aldama and the first listed author. The group G
above is not pseudo-
-bounded either. Furthermore, we show that the free precompact Boolean group of a topological sum
, where each space
is either maximal or discrete, contains no infinite separable pseudocompact subsets.
