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

Output the total number of students who are subscribed to the English newspaper only.

                            Solution in C :

num1 = int(input())
setA = set(map(int, input().split()))
num2 = int(input())
setB = set(map(int, input().split()))

print(len(setA.difference(setB)))

Swap Nodes [Algo]

A binary tree is a tree which is characterized by one of the following properties: It can be empty (null). It contains a root node only. It contains a root node with a left subtree, a right subtree, or both. These subtrees are also binary trees. In-order traversal is performed as Traverse the left subtree. Visit root. Traverse the right subtree. For this in-order traversal, start from

Kitty's Calculations on a Tree

Kitty has a tree, T , consisting of n nodes where each node is uniquely labeled from 1 to n . Her friend Alex gave her q sets, where each set contains k distinct nodes. Kitty needs to calculate the following expression on each set: where: { u ,v } denotes an unordered pair of nodes belonging to the set. dist(u , v) denotes the number of edges on the unique (shortest) path between nodes a

Is This a Binary Search Tree?

For the purposes of this challenge, we define a binary tree to be a binary search tree with the following ordering requirements: The data value of every node in a node's left subtree is less than the data value of that node. The data value of every node in a node's right subtree is greater than the data value of that node. Given the root node of a binary tree, can you determine if it's also a

Square-Ten Tree

The square-ten tree decomposition of an array is defined as follows: The lowest () level of the square-ten tree consists of single array elements in their natural order. The level (starting from ) of the square-ten tree consists of subsequent array subsegments of length in their natural order. Thus, the level contains subsegments of length , the level contains subsegments of length , the

Balanced Forest

Greg has a tree of nodes containing integer data. He wants to insert a node with some non-zero integer value somewhere into the tree. His goal is to be able to cut two edges and have the values of each of the three new trees sum to the same amount. This is called a balanced forest. Being frugal, the data value he inserts should be minimal. Determine the minimal amount that a new node can have to a

Jenny's Subtrees

Jenny loves experimenting with trees. Her favorite tree has n nodes connected by n - 1 edges, and each edge is ` unit in length. She wants to cut a subtree (i.e., a connected part of the original tree) of radius r from this tree by performing the following two steps: 1. Choose a node, x , from the tree. 2. Cut a subtree consisting of all nodes which are not further than r units from node x .
