## Abstract

The Banach-Zarecki Theorem states that VB ∩ (N) = AC for continuous functions on a closed set, hence it is a linear space.

In this article we show that VB ∩ (N) is a linear space on any real Borel set, hence VBG ∩ (N) will also be a real linear space for Borel functions defined on an interval.

As a consequence of this result, we can define a new integral which contains both, the PD-integral of Sarkhel and De (see *The proximally continuous integrals*, J. Austral. Math. Soc. (Series A) **31** (1981), 26-45) and the AK_{N} - integral of Gordon (see *Some comments on an approximately continuous Khintchine integral*, Real Analysis Exchange **20** (1994/5), no. 2, 831-841).

We also give answers to Gordon's questions of *Some comments on an approximately continuous Khintchine integral* (Real Analysis Exchange **20** (1994/5), no. 2, 831-841):

- Is every VBG ∩ (N) ∩ C
_{ap} function a [CG] function?
- Is every indefinite AP integral a [CG] function?

The answer to Question 1 is negative and the answer to Question 2 is affirmative (see Remark 4).
