    I know that the empty set is a subset of every set but I'm not sure if its a subset of itself.

    It is a subset of itself because a subset of finite set also contains that set.

    It depends if you mean just subset and proper subset. One allows the set to be a subset of itself, and the other doesn't.

    This is really a matter of semantics, since there are notational inconsistencies regarding \( \subset\) and \( \subseteq \)

    I mean proper subset. I think its false.

    but considering just a subset is TRUE.

    It is false for a proper subset, but it is a subset.

    ya its not a proper subset of itself, but it sure is a subset of itself
