AbstractSet contains() method in Java with Example

The contains() method of Java AbstractSet is used to check whether an element is present in a set or not. It takes the element as a parameter and returns True if the element is present in the set.

Syntax:

public boolean contains(Object element)

Parameters: The parameter element is of type set. This parameter refers to the element whose occurrence is needed to be checked in the set.

Return Value: The method returns a boolean value. It returns True if the element is present in the set otherwise it returns False.

Below programs illustrate the AbstractSet.contains() method:

        abs.add("20");
  
        // Displaying the set
        System.out.println("AbstractSet: "
                           + abs);
  
        // Check if the set contains "Hello"
        System.out.println("\nDoes the set"
                           + " contains 'Hello': "
                           + abs.contains("Hello"));
  
        // Check if the set contains "20"
        System.out.println("Does the set"
                           + " contains '20': "
                           + abs.contains("20"));
  
        // Check if the set contains "Geeks"
        System.out.println("Does the set"
                           + " contains 'Geeks': "
                           + abs.contains("Geeks"));
    }
}

Output:

AbstractSet: [10, 20, Geeks, for]

Does the set contains 'Hello': false
Does the set contains '20': true
Does the set contains 'Geeks': true

Does the set contains '10': true

Does the set contains '50': true
