Language/Type: Python collections dict set

Write the output produced when the following function is passed each of the following lists of names:

def mystery(names):
    result = set()
    for element in names:
        if element < names[0]:

Though sets store their contents in unpredictable order, for this problem, write the values sorted in alphabetical order. Write your answer in this format: {'value', 'value', 'value'}

['marty', 'stuart', 'helene', 'jessica', 'amanda']
['sara', 'allison', 'janette', 'zack', 'riley']
['zorah', 'alex', 'tyler', 'roy', 'roy', 'charlie', 'phil', 'charlie', 'tyler']
