comment Why can't a set have two elements of the same value?
If the curly bracket notation shows the members of a set then it may be valid, but not useful to show a member of a set more than once. If the notation is of a function taking those items to produce a set then B would be OK, but his question is "why can't sets contain duplicate elements", for which the answer is clearly Clintons - because then it would not be a set - as commonly interpreted rather than some Humpty-Dumpty-esque private meaning of sets such as that from Nick in another comment on this answer.

-1 on this as it is not how a set is defined (See Clintons answer). If asked to show the members of a set then no member should be seen more than once!

I am in the midst of learning about hypothesis testing at the moment. Thanks for the link to the other Q&A - I'll follow that lead too. Thanks.
