Solution

## The correct option is A 45A0,A1,.............,A30⟹ each of 5 elementsB1,B2,B3...........n⟹ each of 3 elementsThe number of elements in the union of the A sets is 5(30)−r where 'r' is the number repeats likewise the number of elements in the B sets 3n−rBEach element in the union (in5) is repeated 10 times in A which means if x was the real number of elements in A (not counting repeats) then q out of those 10 should be thrown away or 9x .likewise on the B side 8x of those elements should be thrown away So, ⟹150−9x=3n−8xn=50−3xNow in figure out what x is we need to use the fact that the union of a group of sets contains every member of each sets . If every element in 'S' is repeated 10 times that means every element in the union of the n's is repeated 10 times .This means that 10/10⟹15 is the number of in the A's without repeats counted (same for the B's aswell ) So now 50−153=nn=45Subset:- A proper subset is nothing but it contain atleast one more element of main set .Ex:{3,4,5} is a set then the possible subsets are {3},{4},{5},{1,5},{3,4}
