Python's set.difference(~) method returns a new set with elements that are contained in the particular specified set, but not in other sets.

Parameters

1. others | set(s)

The other sets.

Return value

A new set with elements that are contained in the particular specified set, but not in other sets.

Examples

Basic usage

To return elements contained in set a, but not contained in sets b or c:

a = {'dog', 'cat'}
b = {'sheep', 'dog'}
c ={'mouse', 'tiger'}

a.difference(b, c)
{'cat'}

The returned set contains 'cat' as it is part of set a, but not part of sets b or c.
