Please let me know how to sort the data in the below array list.




I know that we can put A4.get(0) and A4.get(1) in TreeSet and sort the list, but can the list be sorted just using above code like,

I used Collections.sort(A4) it is giving wrong results. Also, while using Collections.sort(A4), is the list sorted by taking A4.get(0) as a reference or A4.get(1) as reference.

Please let me know>

What are you getting? How are you sorting? Remember Collections#sort takes Comparable as its parameter, and I don't think Lists are usually Comparable. Strings are however, so you should be able to sort a List<String>.
Remember the order Strings are sorted in: ASCIIbetical.
