Others form a row of primes then primesx2 then semi-primes then semi-primesx2 and other patterns as well. And of course my posts would not be complete without a few painfully annoying nags to some: The challenge does not define any rules regarding repeating terms within/between the two sets A & B. Without such clarifications many trivial solutions can be found.
Yup: A=[3, 99, 3, 99] B=[1, 22, 1, 22]
