public class LinkedListDemo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
 
      // Creating an empty LinkedList
      LinkedList<String> list = new LinkedList<String>();
 
      // Use add() method to add elements in the list
      list.add("Geeks");
      list.add("for");
      list.add("Geeks");
      list.add("10");
      list.add("20");
 
      // Output the list
      System.out.println("LinkedList:" + list);
 
      // Check if the list contains "Hello"
      System.out.println("\nDoes the List contains 'Hello': "
                                      + list.contains("Hello"));
 
      // Check if the list contains "20"
      System.out.println("Does the List contains '20': "
                                         + list.contains("20"));
       
      // Check if the list contains "Geeks"
      System.out.println("Does the List contains 'Geeks': "
