Example #1:

 `// Scala program of take()  ` `// method  ` ` `  `// Creating object  ` `object` `GfG  ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method  ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ` `    ``{  ` `        ``// Creating a set  ` `        ``val` `s``1` `=` `Set(``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Applying take method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `s``1``.take(``2``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Display output ` `        ``println(result) ` `    ``}  ` `}  `

Output:

```Set(5, 1)
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program of take()  ` `// method  ` ` `  `// Creating object  ` `object` `GfG  ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method  ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ` `    ``{  ` `        ``// Creating a set  ` `        ``val` `s``1` `=` `Set(``41``, ``12``, ``23``, ``43``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Applying take method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `s``1``.take(``3``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Display output ` `        ``println(result) ` `    ``}  ` `}  `
