let A, B be Subset of X; :: thesis: ( A is a_component & A c= B implies A is_a_component_of B )
assume that

ex A1 being Subset of (X | B) st
( A = A1 & A1 is a_component )
proof
B = [#] (X | B) by PRE_TOPC:def 5;
then reconsider C = A as Subset of (X | B) by A2;
take A1 = C; :: thesis: ( A = A1 & A1 is a_component )
A4: for D being Subset of (X | B) st D is connected & A1 c= D holds
A1 = D
proof
let D be Subset of (X | B); :: thesis: ( D is connected & A1 c= D implies A1 = D )
assume A5: D is connected ; :: thesis: ( not A1 c= D or A1 = D )
reconsider D1 = D as Subset of X by PRE_TOPC:11;
assume A6: A1 c= D ; :: thesis: A1 = D
D1 is connected by ;
hence A1 = D by ; :: thesis: verum

A1 is connected by ;

hence A is_a_component_of B by CONNSP_1:def 6; :: thesis: verum
