Abstract: In this paper we study measurability properties of sets of the form

*C*and

*T*seem apparent for which , where

*m*denotes the Lebesgue measure in

**R**and . In fact, we prove that if

*T*is any Lebesgue measurable subset of

**R**, then no such sets can exist: no matter which

*C*we choose, if

*A*is measurable then

*mA*equals 0 or

*mT*. Moreover, if

*A*is a nonmeasurable set, the same applies to its Lebesgue outer measure. However, if we remove the condition on

*T*of being measurable, we provide an example of (nonmeasurable) sets

*C*and

*T*for which the outer measure of

*A*lies in between 0 and the outer measure of

*T*.
