Does a Vector contain elements in sorted order?
It is an implementation of the List interface which
allows duplicate elements in sorted order.

Hi Anjela,
Yes, the Vector will contain the elements in a sorted order.This is because the Vector implements the responsibility of the List interface, which maintains the ordered sequence of elements.
Hope this helps,

Hi, Angela, Vector does not contain element in sorted order. Only class implementing SortedMap or SortedSet contain element in sorted order.
But Vector contains element in ordered way, which means you can access the element through index of position.

Hello All,
Guoqiao is right vector does not contain elements in sorted order.
Sandeep, sorted way is different from ordered way. As Guoqiao said Ordered way only means that you can access the element through index of position. It has no relation with sorting.
The best way is to try some code.
