    {
  
        // Creating an empty Collection
        AbstractCollection<String>
            abs = new TreeSet<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add
        // elements into the Collection
        abs.add("Welcome");
        abs.add("To");
        abs.add("Geeks");
        abs.add("4");
        abs.add("Geeks");
        abs.add("TreeSet");
  
        // Displaying the Collection
        System.out.println("Collection: " + abs);
  
        // Check for the empty collection
        System.out.println("Is the collection empty? "
                           + abs.isEmpty());
  
        // Clearing the collection
        // using clear() method
        abs.clear();
  
        // Again Checking for the empty collection
        System.out.println("Is the collection empty? "
                           + abs.isEmpty());
    }
}

Output:

Collection: [4, Geeks, To, TreeSet, Welcome]
