Python Data Types: Sets - Exercises, Practice, Solution

Python Sets [ 20 exercises with solution]

A set object is an unordered collection of distinct hashable objects. It is commonly used in membership testing, removing duplicates from a sequence, and computing mathematical operations such as intersection, union, difference, and symmetric difference.

You may read our Python sets tutorial before solving the following exercises.

11. Write a Python program to create a shallow copy of sets. Go to the editor

Note : Shallow copy is a bit-wise copy of an object. A new object is created that has an exact copy of the values in the original object.
