How does Monero..

1) Prevent "Double spending"? Bitcoin does this by verifying UTXOs and comparing it to Inputs.

2) Prevent "Unnoticeable inflation"? i.e. new coins being minted out of thin air, that cannot ever be detected due to strict privacy in base layer.

3) Prevent "Fractional reserve", just like gold (paper money), in the future?

4) Determine the total number of "coins truly in circulation"? Is there a tool, that I can use online?

5) Determine the number of "active Monero addresses"? Just like we can know the number of active Bitcoin addresses.

I know, these have been discussed at various phases of the project. However, I haven't got truly convincing answers to these "important questions" I feel, which would deepen my overall understanding.

Thanks!
