Lemma 21.51.1. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a site. Let $U$ be a weakly contractible object of $\mathcal{C}$. Then

  1. the functor $\mathcal{F} \mapsto \mathcal{F}(U)$ is an exact functor $\textit{Ab}(\mathcal{C}) \to \textit{Ab}$,

  2. $H^ p(U, \mathcal{F}) = 0$ for every abelian sheaf $\mathcal{F}$ and all $p \geq 1$, and

  3. for any sheaf of groups $\mathcal{G}$ any $\mathcal{G}$-torsor has a section over $U$.

Proof. The first statement follows immediately from the definition (see also Homology, Section 12.7). The higher derived functors vanish by Derived Categories, Lemma 13.16.9. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a $\mathcal{G}$-torsor. Then $\mathcal{F} \to *$ is a surjective map of sheaves. Hence (3) follows from the definition as well. $\square$
