# How many subsets can be created from the set {1, 2, 3}? a) 3, b) 6, c) 7, d) 8

If all the elements of set 'B' are also present in set 'A' , then Set 'B' is said to be a subset of set 'A'. A set with 'n' elements in it can have 2^{n} subsets. It is denoted by the symbol ⊆.

## Answer: Option d) 8. There are 8 subsets that can be created from the set {1, 2, 3}.

Let's find the number of subsets.

**Explanation:**

The subsets of {1,2,3} are: {1}, {2}, {3}, {1,2}, {1,3}, {2,3}, {1,2,3} and { } or Ø (the empty set)

An empty set is a subset of all the sets.
