Can you state what $\subseteq$ and $\in$ means?

⊆ = Subset
∈ = Element

Definition:

If all the elements of a set is contained in ANOTHER set, then the set whose elements are contained in another set is a subset.
Ex. Set A 's elements= 1,2,3 Set B's elements= 1,2,3,4,5 so... that means all the elements of Set A are in Set B, so A ⊆ B.

So, in reference to the first part of the question, is $\mathbb{N}$ a set or an element?
