**Use an element argument to prove each statement in 7-22. Assume that all sets are subsets of a universal set ****U****.**

For all sets *A*,*B*, and C, if

To determine

**To prove:**

Find the mistake in the following “proof” that for all sets

Suppose

**Given information:**

Let

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

Let

Prove that. If

According to the definition of subset, the statement

But the proof given in me text book, dealt with a single element

So the statement “Since

Also the statement ‘since

The other error in the proof ¡s occurs in the last step
