Consider the set S = {a, b, c, d}. Consider the following 4 partitions $$\,{\pi _1},\,{\pi _2},\,{\pi _3},\,{\pi _4}$$ on $$S:\,{\pi _1} = \left\{ {\overline {a\,b\,c\,d} } \right\},\,{\pi _2} = \left\{ {\overline {a\,b\,} ,\,\overline {c\,d} } \right\},\,{\pi _3} = \left\{ {\overline {a\,b\,c\,} ,\,\overline d } \right\},\,{\pi _4} = \left\{ {\overline {a\,} ,\,\overline b ,\,\overline c ,\,\overline d } \right\}.$$ Let $$\prec$$ be the partial order on the set of partitions $$S' = \{ {\pi _1},\,{\pi _2},\,{\pi _3},\,{\pi _4}\}$$ defined as follows: $${\pi _i} \prec \,\,{\pi _j}$$ if and only if $${\pi _i}$$ refines $${\pi _j}$$. The poset diagram for $$(S',\, \prec )$$ is
