B = {3, 5, 7}

C = {1, 5, 7, 8, 9}

Find (a) A’     (b) B’     (c) C’

11. State whether true or false.

(b) {1} ↔ {0}

(c) Whole numbers ⊆ natural numbers

(e) Natural numbers ⊆ whole numbers

(f) Integers ⊆ natural numbers

(g) 0 ∈ ∅

(h) ∅ ∈ {1 , 2, 3 }

12. Let the set of integer be the universal set and let A = set of whole numbers, then what is A’?

13. Let A {x : x = n — 2, n < 5}. Find A when

(a) n = W, n ∈ W

(b) n = N, n ∈ N

(c) n ∈ I = I
