        // Adding nodes in LinkedList
        myList.AddLast("A");
        myList.AddLast("B");
        myList.AddLast("C");

        myList.AddLast("E");
  
        // Displaying the nodes in LinkedList
        Console.WriteLine("The elements in LinkedList are : ");
  
        foreach(string str in myList)
