Abstract: A space is called supercompact if it has an open subbase such that every cover consisting of elements of the subbase has a subcover consisting of two elements. In this paper we prove that, in a continuous image of a closed $ {G_\delta }$-set of a supercompact space, a point is a cluster point of a countable set if and only if it is the limit of a nontrivial sequence. As corollaries, we answer questions asked by J. van Mill et al.
