I have two questions

explain why any subset of a finite set is finite. (prove)

and

why is empty set is considered to be a subset of any set?

I'm confused, because lets say set A is a subset of set B it means that every element of A is an element of B. in the case of empty set being a subset of any set kind of hoodwinked me. please explain.

and also the idea of it being disjoint with any set, even from itself.
