Exercise 111.42.2. Let $X = U \cup V$ be a topological space written as the union of two opens. Then we have a long exact Mayer-Vietoris sequence

\[ 0 \to H^0(X, \mathcal{F}) \to H^0(U, \mathcal{F}) \oplus H^0(V, \mathcal{F}) \to H^0(U \cap V, \mathcal{F}) \to H^1(X, \mathcal{F}) \to \ldots \]

What property of injective sheaves is essential for the construction of the Mayer-Vietoris long exact sequence? Why does it hold?
