# Creating a Set

In Python, there are several ways to create sets.

1. You can use the built-in `set()` function and pass the desired elements to it;
2. You can place a sequence of elements inside curly braces and separate them with commas.

Here are some key points about sets:

• They are mutable;
• Sets only contain unique elements. If you add duplicate elements when creating a set, they'll be removed in the final set;
• The order of elements in a set is not guaranteed;
• Set elements can be of various data types.

Let's dive into an example. First, we'll create a set using the `set()` function.

Next, we'll create sets using curly braces.

1. Make a set with strings as follows:
`'pineapple'`, `'pear'`, `'cherry'` ;
2. Construct a set with a mix of data types like this:
`'pear'`, `45`, `None`, `'car'`, `'Joe'`, `12`, `5`.

Note

Please write values in the exact order given in the task instructions.
