#### Answer

The sets are equivalent.

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL:
(1) $A = B$ if and only if the elements of A and B are exactly the same.
(2) Sets $A$ and $B$ are equivalent if they have the same number of elements.
When written in roster method, the set on the left is $\left\{a, b, c, d, e\right\}$.
This set has 5 elements.
The set on the right also has 5 elements.
The two sets have the same number of elements but the elements themselves are different.
Thus, the two sets are equivalent.
