b. proper subset one that is strictly contained within a larger class and excludes some of its members.

Subset

 

A subset of a set A is any set each of whose elements belongs to A. For example, the set of all even numbers is a subset of the set of all integers. If the empty set is included among the sets, then by definition it is a subset of any other set. The set A itself and the empty set are sometimes called improper subsets, while the other subsets are called proper.

A fuzzy set A is a subset of a fuzzy set B if, for every element x, the value of the membership function of A at x is equal to or less than the value of the membership function of B at x.

subset

A group of commands or functions that do not include all the capabilities of the original specification. Software or hardware components designed for the subset will also work with the original. However, any component designed for the full original specification will not operate with the subset product. Contrast with superset.
