Ethan, I don't understand what the problem is. I also don't understand your side note question "how does partial-ordering work for sets?" I'm not sure what you're asking.

In your example the first counter had `b` twice, while the second counter had it only once. So the result is `False`. This comes pretty directly from my definition, I'm not sure where the confusion is. 

Regarding your new example: Since `Counter` works like a `defaultdict`, the second counter has a zero quantity of `b`. So the answer is again `False`.
