#### Streszczenie

The hyperspaces $ANR(ℝ^n)$ and $AR(ℝ^n)$ in $2^{ℝ^n} (n ≥ 3)$ consisting respectively of all compact absolute neighborhood retracts and all compact absolute retracts are studied. It is shown that both have the Borel type of absolute $G_{δσ δ}$-spaces and that, indeed, they are not $F_{σ δσ }$-spaces. The main result is that $ANR(ℝ^n)$ is an absorber for the class of all absolute $G_{δσ δ}$-spaces and is therefore homeomorphic to the standard model space $Ω_3$ of this class.
