Output:

False

Note:

  • A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.
  • A collection that is read-only is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modifying the collection. Therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.
  • Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
