The get() method of java.util.AbstractList class is used to return the element at the specified position in this list.

Syntax:

Parameters: This method takes index of the element as a parameter, the element at which is to be returned.

Returns Value: This method returns the element at the specified position in this list.

Exception: This method throws IndexOutOfBoundsException if the index is out of range (index = size()).

Below are the examples to illustrate the get() method.

            // Populating arrlist1
            arrlist1.add(10);
            arrlist1.add(20);
            arrlist1.add(30);
            arrlist1.add(40);
            arrlist1.add(50);
  
            // print arrlist1
            System.out.println("ArrayListlist : "
                               + arrlist1);
  
            // getting the value at the index 3
            // using get() method
            int value = arrlist1.get(3);
  
            // print the value
            System.out.println("Element at index 3 : "
                               + value);
        }
  
        catch (IndexOutOfBoundsException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
