Directions for the following four questions: Answer the questions based on the following information.

A and B are two sets (e.g. A = Mothers, B = Women).

The elements that could belong to both the sets (e.g. women who are mothers) is given by the set $$C = A \cap B$$.

The elements which could belong to either A or B, or both, is indicated by the set $$D = A \cup B$$ .

A set that does not contain any elements is known as a null set represented by $$\phi$$(e.g. if none of the women in the set B is a mother, then $$C = A \cap B$$ is a null set, or C = $$\phi$$).

Let ‘V’ signify the set of all vertebrates, ‘M’ the set of all mammals, ‘D’ dogs, ‘F’ fish, ‘A’ alsatian and ‘P’, a dog named Pluto.

Question 100

If $$P \cap A = \phi$$ and $$P \cup A = D$$, then which of the following is true?


We know that $$P \cap A = \phi$$ means that the pluto is not an alsatian and $$P \cup A = D$$ means that the pluto along with alsatian makes the set D . hence option D - Both A and C.
