Abstract: Suppose a smooth curve is a set-theoretic complete intersection of two surfaces and with the multiplicity of along less than or equal to the multiplicity of along . One obtains a relation between the degrees of , and , the genus of , and the multiplicity of along in case has only ordinary singularities. One obtains (in the characteristic zero case) that a nonsingular rational curve of degree 4 in is not set-theoretically an intersection of 2 surfaces, provided one of them has at most ordinary singularities. The same result holds for a general nonsingular rational curve of degree .
