Why 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch? Aren’t all those sizes included in a set?

Gary 1/4,3/8, 1/2 etc are imperial sizes and now we have gone decimal and metric they will be 5mm, 10mm, 23mm etc You can get a set of either or some sets are mixed as some people do have older cars that use imperial sizes.
Hope this answers your question.
