Vocabulary: Categorize the subsets into the set(s) to which they belong. Some subsets may belong to multiple sets or not set at all.

Note that not all subsets for every set are included in this item.

- {}
- {3}
- {1, 3}
- {1, 3, 5}
- {1, 3, 5, 7}

- Set {1, 3, 5}
- Set {1, 3}
- Set {3}

Always

Sometimes

Never
