                         new ConcurrentSkipListSet<Integer>();

        // Printing the elements of the set
        System.out.println("The elements in the set are:");
        for (Integer i : set)
            System.out.print(i + " ");
  
        // remove() method will remove the specified
        // element from the set
        set.remove(1);
        set.remove(5);
  
        // Printing the elements of the set
        System.out.println("\nRemaining elements in set : ");
        for (Integer i : set)
            System.out.print(i + " ");
    }
}
