// Java code to illustrate LinkedHashSet.contains() method
import java.io.*;
import java.util.LinkedHashSet;
  
public class LinkedHashSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an empty LinkedHashSet
        LinkedHashSet<String> set = new LinkedHashSet<String>();
  
        // Using add() method to add elements into the Set
        set.add("Welcome");
        set.add("To");
        set.add("Geeks");
        set.add("4");
        set.add("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the LinkedHashSet
        System.out.println("LinkedHashSet: " + set);
  
        // Check for "Geeks" in the set
        System.out.println("Does the Set contains 'Geeks'? " + set.contains("Geeks"));
  
        // Check for "4" in the set
        System.out.println("Does the Set contains '4'? " + set.contains("4"));
  
        // Check if the Set contains "No"
        System.out.println("Does the Set contains 'No'? " + set.contains("No"));
    }
}
