1. In a collection class, usually we dont specify the no of objects intially. How is it getting allocated dynamically?

2. Is there anyway that one can alter an array's size without altering it declaration?

1. That depends on the implementation. Compare ArrayList which implements
a List using an array, and LinkedList which implements a List using link
elements.

2. I think what you are really asking is if arrays can dynamically change
their length: no, they cannot.

This is a nice beginner-level question, so let's move it to Java in General (Beginner).
