Abstract: We show that the real line R cannot be covered by k many nowhere dense sets iff whenever $ D = \{ {D_i}:i \in k\} $ is a family of dense open sets of R there exists a countable dense set G of R such that $ \vert G\backslash {D_i}\vert < \omega $ for all $ i \in k$. We also show that the union of k meagre sets of the real line is a meagre set iff for every family $ D = \{ {D_i}:i \in k\} $ of dense open sets of R and for every countable dense set G of R there exists a dense set $ Q \subseteq G$ such that $ \vert Q\backslash {D_{i}}\vert < \omega $ for all $ i \in k$.
