Python: Remove an item from a set if it is present in the set

Python sets: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to remove an item from a set if it is present in the set.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

#Create a new set
num_set = set([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5])
print("Original set elements:")
print(num_set)
print("\nRemove 0 from the said set:")
num_set.discard(4)
print(num_set)
print("\nRemove 5 from the said set:")
num_set.discard(5)
print(num_set)
print("\nRemove 2 from the said set:")
num_set.discard(5)
print(num_set)
print("\nRemove 7 from the said set:")
num_set.discard(15)
print(num_set)

Sample Output:

Original set elements:
{0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

Remove 0 from the said set:
{0, 1, 2, 3, 5}

Remove 5 from the said set:
{0, 1, 2, 3}

Remove 2 from the said set:
{0, 1, 2, 3}

Remove 7 from the said set:
{0, 1, 2, 3}
