∩  means "intersection"......it is defined as the set of all the elements common to some n sets

 

U  means "union".......it is  the set composed of all the elements of n sets

 

A  =  { 1,2,3,4}

 

B = { 2,3,5, 6}

 

C = {3,4,6,7}

 

So.....B ∩ C  =  { 3, 6 } = {6, 3} [ the order doesn't matter]     "A"  is the answer

 

And  C U A  = { 1,2,3,4,6,7}   "E"  is the answer

Introducing Math Symbols for Union and Intersection.  “There are two sets of symbols for 'union' and 'intersection'. One is the ∪ (union) and the upside down ∩ (intersection), and the other set is the ∨ and the ∧.
