Q. Over the set A={1,2,3,4,5} two partitions a and b are defined as a={{1,2,3},{4},{5}} and b={{1},{2,3},{4,5}}.The MEET and JOIN(under refinement relations between partitions ) are respectively.

A) {(1),(2,3),(4),(5)} and {(1,2,3),(4,5)}

B){(1,2,3)(4,5)} and{(1,2),(3),(4,5)}

C){(1,2),(3,4)(5)} and {(1,2),(3,4),(5)}

D){(1,2,3,4,5)} and {(1),(2),(3),(4),(5)}

Suppose , we have two partition of set S

P1 ={A1,A2,A3....}   and P2 = {B1,B2,B3.....}

We can say that "P1 is refinement of P2 if every Ai is a subset of some Bj"

According to given question

option (a) satisfy refinement property.

Where is intersection in meet points and also join is not correct because every element present distinctly.. so D is  not correct
