        // Creating an empty Stack
        Stack<String> STACK = new Stack<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements
        STACK.push("Welcome");
        STACK.push("To");
        STACK.push("Geeks");
        STACK.push("For");
        STACK.push("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the Stack
        System.out.println("Initial Stack: " + STACK);
  
        // Removing elements using pop() method
        System.out.println("Popped element: "
                                         STACK.pop());
        System.out.println("Popped element: "
                                         STACK.pop());
  
        // Displaying the Stack after pop operation
        System.out.println("Stack after pop peration "
                                             + STACK);
    }
}
