I'm supposed to show that there is no neighborhood of in on which my copy of is globally cut out by independent functions, and I think this should just be a byproduct of , but I cannot see how to show this, as far as I can see I should be able to separate from itself since is just with a copy of glued in, so why not just move the sphere away from itself into this copy or Euclidean space. Any help appreciated.

To be able to move the sphere away from itself into the copy of means you have a global section of the principal -bundle and hence you would get , which is nonsense.

Another way to see why is using the cohomology ring of : where has degree 2 and represented by the dual of any hyperplane .
