**Proof.**
Choose a generator $U$ of $\mathcal{A}$. Denote $c$ the function of Lemma 19.12.1. Set $\kappa = \sup \{ c^ n(|U|), n = 1, 2, 3, \ldots \} $. Let $n \in \mathbf{Z}$ and let $\psi : U \to M^ n$ be a morphism. In order to prove (1) and (2) it suffices to prove there exists a subcomplex $N^\bullet \subset M^\bullet $ which is bounded above, acyclic, and $|N^ m| \leq \kappa $, such that $\psi $ factors through $N^ n$. To do this set $N^ n = \mathop{\mathrm{Im}}(\psi )$, $N^{n + 1} = \mathop{\mathrm{Im}}(U \to M^ n \to M^{n + 1})$, and $N^ m = 0$ for $m \geq n + 2$. Suppose we have constructed $N^ m \subset M^ m$ for all $m \geq k$ such that

$\text{d}(N^ m) \subset N^{m + 1}$, $m \geq k$,

$\mathop{\mathrm{Im}}(N^{m - 1} \to N^ m) = \mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(N^ m \to N^{m + 1})$ for all $m \geq k + 1$, and

$|N^ m| \leq c^{\max \{ n - m, 0\} }(|U|)$

for some $k \leq n$. Because $M^\bullet $ is acyclic, we see that the subobject $\text{d}^{-1}(\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(N^ k \to N^{k + 1})) \subset M^{k - 1}$ surjects onto $\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(N^ k \to N^{k + 1})$. Thus we can choose $N^{k - 1} \subset M^{k - 1}$ surjecting onto $\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(N^ k \to N^{k + 1})$ with $|N^{k - 1}| \leq c^{n - k + 1}(|U|)$ by Lemma 19.12.1. The proof is finished by induction on $k$.
