Solution.
(i) The collection of all months of a year beginning with J is {J anuary, June, July}, which is well defined and hence it forms a set.
(ii) The collection of most talented writers of India is not well defined because opinions about ‘most talented writers’ vary from person to person and hence it does not form a set.
(iii) A team of eleven bestcricket batsmen of the world is not well defined because opinions about ‘bestcricket batsmen’ vary from person to person and hence it does not form a set.
(iv) The collection of all boys in your class is well defined and hence it forms a set.
(v) The collection of all natural numbers less than 100 is {1, 2, 3, 4,…………, 99}, which is well
defined and hence it forms a set.
(vi) A collection of novels written by the writer Munshi Prem Chand is well defined and hence it forms a set.
(vii) The collection of all even integers is {…………..,4, 2, 0, 2, 4,……….. } which is well defined and hence it forms a set.
(viii) The collection of questions in this chapter is well defined and hence it forms a set.
(ix) A collection of most dangerous animals of the world is not well defined because opinions about ‘most dangerous animals’ vary from person to person and hence it does not form a set.
Ex 1.1 Class 11 Maths Question 2.
Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Insert the appropriate symbol ∈ or ∉ in the blank spaces:
(i) 5…A
(ii) 8…A
(iii) 0…A
(iv) 4…A
(v) 2…A
(vi) 10…A
Solution.
(i) Since 5 is the element of A. ∴ 5 ∉ A.
(ii) As 8 is not the element of A. ∴ 8 ∉ A
(iii) As 0 is not the element of A ∴ 0 ∈ A.
(iv) 4 is the element of A ∴ 4 ∈ A.
(v) 2 is the element of A ∴ 2 ∈ A.

Solution.
(i) Integers lying between 3 and 7 are 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, ……….. , 6
∴ A = {2,1, 6}.
(ii) Natural numbers less than 6 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
∴ B = 11, 2, 3, 4, 5}
(iii) Two digit natural numbers such that the sum of its digits is 8 are 17, 26, 35, 44, 53, 62, 71, 80.
∴ C= (17, 26, 35, 44, 53, 62, 71,80}
(iv) Prime number divisors of 60 are 2, 3, 5.
∴ D = (2, 3, 5}
(v) Word TRIGONOMETRY is formed by using the letters T, R, I, G, O, N, M, E, Y.
∴ E = (T, R, I, G, N, O, M, E, Y}
(vi) Word BETTER is formed by using the letters B, E, T, R
∴ F = (B, E, T, R}

(v) {1,4,9,……..,100}
Solution.
(i) Let A = (3, 6, 9, 12}
All elements of the set are natural numbers that are multiples of 3.
∴ A = (x : x = 3n, n∈N and 1 ≤ n ≤4}
(ii) Let B = (2, 4, 8, 16, 32} = (2^{1}, 2^{2}, 2^{3}, 2^{4}, 2^{5}}
∴ B = {x : x = 2^{n}, n ∈ N and 1 ≤ n ≤ 5}
(iii) Let C = (5, 25, 125, 625} = (5^{1}, 5^{2}, 5^{3}, 5^{4}}
∴ C = {x : x = 5^{n}, n ∈ N and 1 ≤ n ≤ 4}
(iv) Let D = (2, 4, 6,……………..}
All elements of the set are even natural numbers.
∴ D = (x: x is an even natural number)
(v) Let E = {1,4,9,……….,100}
All elements of the set are perfect squares.
∴ E = {x: x = n^{2}, n ∈ N and 1 ≤ n ≤ 10}

(i) A = {x: x is an odd natural number}
∴ A = {1, 3, 5, 7,……………}
(ii) B = {x: x is an integer, \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \) < x < \(\frac { 9 }{ 2 } \)}
∴ B = { 0, 1, 2, 3, 4}
(iii) C = {x: x is an integer, x^{2} ≤ 4}
x^{2} ≤ 4⇒ 2 ≤ x ≤ 2
∴ C = {2, 1, 0, 1, 2}
(iv) D = {x: x is a letter in the word “LOYAL”}
∴ D = {L, O, Y, A}
(v) E = {x: x is a month of a year not having 31 days}
∴ E = {February, April, June, September, November}
(vi) F = {x: x is a consonant in the English alphabet which precedes k}
∴ F = {b, c, d, f, g, h, j}
Ex 1.1 Class 11 Maths Question 6.
Match each of the set on the left in the roster form with the same set on the right described in setbuilder form:
i. {1,2, 3,6} (a) {x: x is a prime number and a divisor of 6}
ii. {2,3} (b) {x : x is an odd natural number less than 10}
iii. {M, A, T, H, E,I,C, S} (c) {x: x is natural number and divisor of 6} iv. {1, 3, 5, 7, 9} (d) {x : x is a letter of the word MATHEMATICS}.
(i) → (c),
(ii) → (a),
(iii) → (d),
(iv) → (b).
The sets which are in setbuilder form can be written in roster form as follows:
(a) {x : x is a prime number and a divisor of 6} = {2, 3}
(b) {x: x is an odd natural number less than 10} = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}
(c) {x : x is natural number and divisor of 6} = {1, 2, 3, 6}

(v) The set of prime numbers less than 99
Solution.
(i) The set of months of a year is finite set because there are 12 months in a year.
(ii) {1, 2, 3, …} is an infinite set because there are infinite elements in the set.
(iii) {1, 2, 3, …, 99, 100) is a finite set because the set contains finite number of elements.
(iv) The set of positive integers greater than 100 is an infinite set because there are infinite
number of positive integers greater than 100.
(v) The set of prime numbers less than 99 is a finite set because the set contains finite number of elements.
Ex 1.2 Class 11 Maths Question 3.
State whether each of the following set is finite or infinite:

Solution.
(i) The set of lines which are parallel to the xaxis is an infinite set because we can draw infinite number of lines parallel to xaxis.
(ii) The set of letters in the English alphabet is a finite set because there are 26 letters in the English alphabet.
(iii) The set of numbers which are multiple of 5 is an infinite set because there are infinite multiples of 5.
(iv) The set of animals living on the earth is a finite set because the number of animals living on the earth is very large but finite.
(v) The set of circles passing through the origin (0, 0) is an infinite set because we can draw infinite number of circles passing through origin of different radii.
Ex 1.2 Class 11 Maths Question 4.
In the following, state whether A = B or not:
(i) A = {a, b, c, d};B = {d, c, b, a}
(ii) A = {4, 8, 12, 16};B = {8, 4, 16, 18}
(iii) A = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}
B = {x : x is positive even integer and x≤ 10}
(iv) A = {x: x isa multiple of 10}
B = {10, 15, 20, 25, 30,…}
Solution.
(i) A = {a, b, c, d} and B = {d, c, b, a} are equal sets because order of elements does not changes a set.
∴ A = B = [a, b, c, d}.
(ii) A = {4, 8, 12, 16} and B = {8, 4, 16, 18} are not equal sets because 12 ∈ A but 12 ∉ B and 18 ∉ B but 18 ∉ A.
(iii) A = {2, 4, 6, 8,10} and B = {x: x is a positive even integer and x ≤ 10) which can be written in roster form as B = (2, 4, 6, 8, 10) are equal sets.
∴ A = B = {2, 4, 6, 8,10).
(iv) A = {x: x is a multiple of 10) can be written in roster form as A = {10, 20, 30, 40,…….. } and
B – {10, 15, 20, 25, 30, ………..} are not equal sets because 15 ∈ B but 15 ∉ A.
Ex 1.2 Class 11 Maths Question 5.
Are the following pair of sets equal ? Give reasons.
(i) A = {2, 3}, B={x: x is solution of x^{2} + 5x + 6 = 0}
(ii) A = {x: x is a letter in the word FOLLOW}
B = {y: y is a letter in the word WOLF}
Solution.
(i) A = (2, 3} and B = {x: x is a solution of x^{2} + 5x + 6 = 0}
Now, x^{2} + 5x + 6 = 0 ⇒ x^{2} + 3x + 2x + 6 = 0 ⇒ (x + 3)(x + 2) = 0 ⇒ x = 3, 2
∴ B = {2, 3}
Hence, A and B are not equal sets.
(ii) A = {x : x is a letter in the word FOLLOW} = {F, O, L, W}
B = {y: y is a letter in the word WOLF}
= {W, O, L, F}
Hence, A = B = {F, O, L, W}.
Ex 1.2 Class 11 Maths Question 6
From the sets given below, select equal sets:
A = {2, 4, 8, 12),
B = {1, 2, 3, 4},
C = {4, 8, 12, 14},
D ={3,1,4,2},
E ={1, 1},
F ={0, a},
G ={1, 1},
H ={0, 1}
Solution.
From the given sets, we see that sets B and D have same elements and also sets E and G have same elements.
∴ B = D = {1 ,2, 3, 4} and E = G = {1, 1}.

If X and Y are two sets such that n(X) = 17, n(Y) = 23 and n (X ∪ Y) = 38, find n(X ∩ Y).
Solution.
Here n(X) = 17, n(Y) = 23 and n(X ∪ Y) = 38
We know that
n(X ∪ Y) = n(X) + n(Y) n(X ∩ Y)
⇒ 38 = 17 + 23 – n(X ∩ Y)
∴ n(X ∩ Y) = 40 – 38 = 2.

If X and Y are two sets such that X ∪ Y has 18 elements, X has 8 elements and Y has 15 elements; how many elements does X ∩ Y have?
Solution.
Here n(X ∪ Y) = 18. n(X) = 8 and n(Y) = 15
We know that
n(X ∪ Y) = n(X) + n(Y) – n(X ∩ Y)
⇒ 18 = 8 +15 – n(X ∩ Y)
∴ n(X ∩ Y) = 2318 = 5.

We know that
n(H ∪ E) = n(H) + n(E) – n(H ∩ E)
400 = 250 + 200 – n(H ∩ E)
∴ n(H ∩ E) = 450 – 400 = 50.

Solution.
Here n{X) = 40, n(X ∪ Y) = 60 and n(X ∩ Y) = 10
We know that
n(X ∪ Y) = n(X) + n(Y) – n(X ∩ Y)
⇒ 60 = 40 + n(Y) – 10
∴ n(Y) = 60 – 30 = 30.

Solution.
Let C be the set of persons who like coffee and T be the set of persons who like tea.
∴ n(C) = 37, n(T) = 52 and n(C ∪ T) = 70
We know that
n(C ∪ T) = n(C) + n(T) – n(C ∩ T)
⇒ 70 = 37 + 52 – n(C ∩ T)
∴ n(C ∩ T) = 89 – 70 = 19.

In a group of 65 people, 40 like cricket, 10 like both cricket and tennis. How many like tennis only and not cricket? How many like tennis?
Solution.
Let C be the set of people who like cricket and T be the set of people who like tennis. Here n(Q) = 40, n(C ∩ T) = 10 and n(C ∪ T) = 65 .
We know that
n(C ∪ T) = n(C) + n(T) – n(C ∩ T)
⇒ 65 = 40 + n(T) 10
⇒ n{T} = 65 – 30 = 35
∴ Number of people who like tennis = 35 j Now number of people who like tennis only and not cricket
=n(T – C) = n(T) – n(C ∩ T) = 35 – 10 = 25.

Here n(F) = 50, n(S) = 20 and n(F ∩ S) = 10
We know that
n(F ∪ S) = n(F) + n(S) – n(F ∩ S)
n(F ∪ S) = 50 + 20 10 = 60
∴ Number of people who speak at least one of these two languages = 60

Show that for any sets A and B,
A = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A – B) and A ∪ (B – A) = (A ∪ B)
Solution.
(A ∩ B) ∪ (A – B) = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ B’)
= A ∩ (B ∪ B’) (By distributive law)
= A ∩ U = A
Hence, A = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A – B)
Also A ∪ (B – A) = A ∪ (B ∩ A’)
= (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ A’) (By distributive law)
= (A ∪ B) ∩ U= A ∪ B
Hence, A ∪ (B – A) = A ∪ B.

A ∪ B = B. Also, A ∩ B ⊂ A
∴ A ∪ (A ∩ B) = A.
(ii) We know that if A ⊂ B,
then A ∩ B = A Also, A ⊂ A ∪ B
∴ A ∩ (A ∪ B) = A.

Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4}, B = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6}, C = {2, 3, 4, 9,10}.
∴ A ∩ B = [1, 2,3,4} ∩ {2,3,4, 5, 6]
= {2, 3, 4}
A ∩ C = {1, 2, 3, 4} ∩ {2, 3, 4, 9, 10} = {2, 3, 4}
