**A universal set is the set of all elements under consideration, denoted by capital U or sometimes capital E.**

- Example: Given that U = {5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}, list the elements of the following sets.
- Solution: The elements of sets A and B can only be selected from the given universal set U .
- Example:
