Special Puzzle 004 – Abstract Exact Cover

Inspired from this Wikipedia article.

Choose some sets such that the intersection between any two of the sets is an empty set and the union of them is {1, 2, …, 10}. In other (less mathematical) words, choose some groups so each number from 1 to 10 appears exactly once among the chosen groups.

A = {2, 6, 7, 9}
B = {1, 2, 4, 6}
C = {1, 3, 5, 8}
D = {3, 5, 6, 10}
E = {2, 7, 9, 10}
F = {4, 8, 9}
G = {4, 10}
