Since given statement is :
" A is subset of B. Therefore A is subset of P(B)"
Concept:
First we have to understand what is the means of P(B).
P(B) = power set of B
= Set of all subset of B
Let us understand by an example
If
B= {1,2}
Then
P(B)= { {}, {1},{2}, {1,2}}
Since First statement is
A is subset of B.
It implies that
Power set of A is subset of power set of B
It implies that
" P(A) is subset of P(B).
" A is subset of P(B)".
Correct statement is.
"P(A) is subset of P(B)."
So combined statement is:
"A is subset of B.Therefore P(A) is subset of P(B)."
