**MathMate**, Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 2:12pmComplement of set B is a set that contains ALL the members of the universal set LESS the members of set B.

In other words, some properties of the complement of set B are:

1. B'∪B = U

i.e. two to sets combined contains all elements of the universal set.

2. B'∩B = ∅, i.e. the two sets have no common elements.

3. B' = U-B

i.e. B' is formed by taking elements from U all elements contained in B.

Out of the 4 possible choices, there is only one set that satisfies property (2). Confirm the two other properties once you have made your choice.
