If I wanted to find all the solutions where X has type 'a', then I could have
just called the predicate f_a to begin with.

What I am wanting to do is to get all the solutions for both types 'a' and 'b'
(i.e. all instance classes of the type class super). How do I do that?

No problem, I am only wanting to find solutions to predicates.
