If I understand correctly, you want to have a set of sets.  I'm not
intimately familiar with lib(cardinal) (it's a contributed library),
but it seems to support this, at least to some extent.

The following code works:

?- N `:: [] + [['B', 'F'], ['S'], ['F', 'S']] : [1],
   A `:: [] .. ['B', 'F', 'S'],
   A in N,
   'S' in A,

N = [['F', 'S']]
A = ['F', 'S']
Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 1, maybe more)
N = [['S']]
A = ['S']
Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 2)

1. I have used atoms 'S' instead of strings "S" as per my earlier advice.
2. lib(cardinal) does not currently work with propia, because it does not
define an msg/3 generalisation predicate. If someone wants to add this,
please refer to e.g. sd.ecl for an example.
