Watching Hockey Games is a subset of Steeplechasers which in turn is a subset of ones who prefer Caramel candy over Chocolate. Group who carry umbrella to Shower and the group who prefer Caramel candy over Chocolate are subsets of the group which know that the flying fish live in trees and they may or maynot intersect. The group which know that Flying fish live in trees and Group of Alligators are intersecting sets. The group which carry umbrella to shower and who watch hockey intersect with Group of Alligators. All conclusions can now be derived.
