Lemma 17.12.2. Let $(X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ be a ringed space. Any coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module is of finite presentation and hence quasi-coherent.

**Proof.**
Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a coherent sheaf on $X$. Pick a point $x \in X$. By (1) of the definition of coherent, we may find an open neighbourhood $U$ and sections $s_ i$, $i = 1, \ldots , n$ of $\mathcal{F}$ over $U$ such that $\Psi : \bigoplus _{i = 1, \ldots , n} \mathcal{O}_ U \to \mathcal{F}$ is surjective. By (2) of the definition of coherent, we may find an open neighbourhood $V$, $x \in V \subset U$ and sections $t_1, \ldots , t_ m$ of $\bigoplus _{i = 1, \ldots , n} \mathcal{O}_ V$ which generate the kernel of $\Psi |_ V$. Then over $V$ we get the presentation

as desired. $\square$
