## Python sets: Exercise-17 with Solution

Write a Python program to check if two given sets have no elements in common.

Sample Solution-1:

Python Code:

``````x = {1,2,3,4}
y = {4,5,6,7}
z = {8}
print("Original set elements:")
print(x)
print(y)
print(z)
print("\nConfirm two given sets have no element(s) in common:")
print("\nCompare x and y:")
print(x.isdisjoint(y))
print("\nCompare x and z:")
print(z.isdisjoint(x))
print("\nCompare y and z:")
print(y.isdisjoint(z))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original set elements:
{1, 2, 3, 4}
{4, 5, 6, 7}
{8}

Confirm two given sets have no element(s) in common:

Compare x and y:
False

Compare x and z:
True

Compare y and z:
True
```

Sample Solution-2:

Python Code:

``````def compare_sets(s1,s2):
for i in s1:
if i in s2:
return False
return True

x = {1,2,3,4}
y = {4,5,6,7}
z = {8}
print("Original set elements:")
print(x)
print(y)
print(z)
print("\nConfirm two given sets have no element(s) in common:")
print("\nCompare x and y:")
print(compare_sets(x,y))
print("\nCompare x and z:")
print(compare_sets(x,z))
print("\nCompare y and z:")
print(compare_sets(y,z))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original set elements:
{1, 2, 3, 4}
{4, 5, 6, 7}
{8}

Confirm two given sets have no element(s) in common:

Compare x and y:
False

Compare x and z:
True

Compare y and z:
True
```
