// Java code to illustrate isEmpty()
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class SetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an empty Set
        Set<String> set = new HashSet<String>();
  
        // Use 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 Set
        System.out.println("Set: " + set);
  
        // Check for the empty set
        System.out.println("Is the set empty? " + set.isEmpty());
  
        // Clearing the set using clear() method
        set.clear();
  
        // Again Checking for the empty set
        System.out.println("Is the set empty? " + set.isEmpty());
    }
