Abstract: Some recent research has raised questions concerning the possible sizes of scrambled sets for chaotic functions. We answer these questions by showing that a scrambled set can have full measure, but cannot be residual although a scrambled set can be second category in every interval. We also indicate relationships that exist between chaotic functions and transitive functions.
