I'm not sure about this expression:\[\emptyset \subset \{\emptyset\}\], I think it's false.

    This is read: The empty set is a proper subset of the set containing only the empty set.

    The empty set is a subset of any set, regardless of whats in it.

    A is a subset of B if and only if for all elements x of A, x is in B. This is vacuously true, since there are no elements x of the empty set. Hence, the empty set is a subset of the empty set

    Yeah, I know it's true for the subsets, but I mean the PROPER subset

    Proper just means the sets arent equal. So the fact that the empty set is a subset of every set, even though every set isnt empty, means its a proper subset of any non empty set.
