Set.difference() Operation


Problem Statement :


.difference()
The tool .difference() returns a set with all the elements from the set that are not in an iterable.
Sometimes the - operator is used in place of the .difference() tool, but it only operates on the set of elements in set.
Set is immutable to the .difference() operation (or the - operation).

>>> s = set("Hacker")
>>> print s.difference("Rank")
set(['c', 'r', 'e', 'H'])

>>> print s.difference(set(['R', 'a', 'n', 'k']))
set(['c', 'r', 'e', 'H'])

>>> print s.difference(['R', 'a', 'n', 'k'])
set(['c', 'r', 'e', 'H'])

>>> print s.difference(enumerate(['R', 'a', 'n', 'k']))
set(['a', 'c', 'r', 'e', 'H', 'k'])

>>> print s.difference({"Rank":1})
set(['a', 'c', 'e', 'H', 'k', 'r'])

>>> s - set("Rank")
set(['H', 'c', 'r', 'e'])
Task
Students of District College have a subscription to English and French newspapers. Some students have subscribed to only the English newspaper, some have subscribed to only the French newspaper, and some have subscribed to both newspapers.

You are given two sets of student roll numbers. One set has subscribed to the English newspaper, and one set has subscribed to the French newspaper. Your task is to find the total number of students who have subscribed to only English newspapers.


Input Format

The first line contains the number of students who have subscribed to the English newspaper.
The second line contains the space separated list of student roll numbers who have subscribed to the English newspaper.
The third line contains the number of students who have subscribed to the French newspaper.
The fourth line contains the space separated list of student roll numbers who have subscribed to the French newspaper.


Constraints
0 < total number of students in the college <1000


Output Format

Counting On a Tree

Taylor loves trees, and this new challenge has him stumped! Consider a tree, t, consisting of n nodes. Each node is numbered from 1 to n, and each node i has an integer, ci, attached to it. A query on tree t takes the form w x y z. To process a query, you must print the count of ordered pairs of integers ( i , j ) such that the following four conditions are all satisfied: the path from n
