   ArrayList<Integer> arrlist = new ArrayList<Integer>(5);

   // use add() method to add elements in the deque
   arrlist.add(25);
   arrlist.add(10);
   arrlist.add(20);
   arrlist.add(35);        
           
   boolean retval = arrlist.isEmpty();
   if (retval == true) {
   System.out.println("list is empty");
   }
   else {
   System.out.println("list is not empty");
