Abstract: In $ V$, assume that $ \aleph _{\omega }$ is a strong limit cardinal and $ 2^{\aleph _{\omega }}=\aleph _{\omega +1}$. Let $ A$ be the set of approachable ordinals less than $ \aleph _{\omega +1}$. An open question of M. Foreman is whether $ A$ can be non-stationary in some $ \aleph _{\omega }$ and $ \aleph _{\omega +1}$ preserving extension of $ V$. It is shown here that if $ W$ is such an outer model, then $ {\{\,k<\omega :\mathop{\text{cf}}^{W}(\aleph ^{V}_{k})=\aleph ^{W}_{n}\,\}}$ is infinite, for each positive integer $ n$.
