Best Answer

A set "A" is said to be a subset of of set "B", if every element in set "A" is also an element of set "B". If "A" is a subset of "B" and the sets are not equal, "A" is said to be a proper subset of "B". For example: the set of natural numbers is a subset of itself. The set of square numbers is a subset (and also a proper subset) of the set of natural numbers.
