2. Does Vector also store objects in FIFO order?

1 TreeMap is sorted by keys.
2. Think of Vector like an array or ArrayList, it adds to the bottom of the list
3. Thread priority is just a suggestion to the JVM, not a guarantee that one thread will take precedence over another. Think of it like a lottery. A high priority thread has 10 entries, and a low priority thread has 3 entries. What is the probability that the entry drawn is from the high or low priority thread. There is still a chance the low priority gets drawn.
