        // Creating an empty Stack
        Stack<String> stack = new Stack<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements into the Stack
        stack.add("Welcome");
        stack.add("To");
        stack.add("Geeks");
        stack.add("4");
        stack.add("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the Stack
        System.out.println("Stack:  " + stack);
  
        // Verifying if the Stack is empty or not
        System.out.println("Is the Stack empty? "
                           + stack.isEmpty());
  
        // Clearing the Stack
        stack.clear();
