A n B can never be greater than A and B ........ So 0<=A n B <=A and 0<=A n B <=B...... THus, if A and B are countable ......... A n B is also countable

@cinar Can we use Venn Diagrams to prove it? @sauravshakya I think for question 1 and 2, they are about the topic ''sets''.

\[ \large A\setminus(B\setminus A)=A\cap(B\cap A^c)^c=A\cap(B^c\cup A)=A \] on the other hand \[ \large B\setminus(B\setminus A)=B\cap(B\cap A^c)^c=B\cap(B^c\cup A)= \] \[ \large = (B\cap B^c)\cup(B\cap A)=B\cap A \] they are not equal. unless \(A\subseteq B\).

Let \(A=\{a,b,c,d,e\}\) and \(B=\{a,i,u,e,o\}\) then \[ \large A\setminus(B\setminus A)=A\setminus\{i,u,o\}=A \] and \[ \large B\setminus(B\setminus A)=B\setminus\{i,u,o\}=\emptyset \]

\[ \large A\setminus(A\setminus B)=A\cap(A\cap B^c)^c=A\cap(A^c\cup B) \] \[ \large =(A\cap A^c)\cup(A\cap B)=A\cap B \]
