Whats the dax formula to support my scenario?

Let's say if I select option A and B from a smart filter. Imagine the selected options as a venn diagram. Intersection of A and B are common values but im not interested in this. 


I need to find out the independent B (excluding the intersected part) if I select A.  Basically I would like to find out the gaps. The formula should be dynamic enough if I choose options A B C etc. Thanks 😊
