        tree_map.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the TreeMap
        System.out.println("Initial Mappings are: " + tree_map);
  
        // Displaying the cloned TreeMapusing clone()
        System.out.println("The cloned map look like this: "
        tree_map.clone());
    }

Note: The same operation can be performed with any type of Mappings with variation and combination of different data types.
