Fix Python – Python’s “in” set operator


Asked By – Dejas

I’m a little confused about the python in operator for sets.

If I have a set s and some instance b, is it true that b in s means “is there some element x in s such that b == x is true“?

Now we will see solution for issue: Python’s “in” set operator


Yes, but it also means hash(b) == hash(x), so equality of the items isn’t enough to make them the same.
