Python: Check if a given set is superset of itself and superset of another given set

Python sets: Exercise-18 with Solution

Write a Python program to check if a given set is superset of itself and superset of another given set.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

nums = {10,20,30,40,50}
print("Original set: ",nums)
print("If nums is superset of itself?")
print(nums.issuperset(nums))
num1 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7}
num2 = {2, 4}
num3 = {2, 4}
print("\nnum1 = ", num1)
print("num2 = ", num2)
print("num3 = ", num3)
print("If mum1 is superset of num2:")
print(num1>num2)
print("Compare mum2 and num3:")
print("If mum2 is superset of num3:")
print(num2>num3)
print("If mum3 is superset of num2:")
print(num3>num2)

Sample Output:

Original set:  {40, 10, 50, 20, 30}
If nums is superset of itself?
True

num1 =  {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7}
num2 =  {2, 4}
num3 =  {2, 4}
If mum1 is superset of num2:
True
Compare mum2 and num3:
If mum2 is superset of num3:
False
If mum3 is superset of num2:
False
