Will I be seeing questions asking about the methods of this class?

I just saw this question in a certification book :

6. What is the result of the following statements?

From the official objective:

# Write code that uses the generic versions of the Collections API, in particular, the Set, List, and Map interfaces and implementation classes. Recognize the limitations of the non-generic Collections API and how to refactor code to use the generic versions. Write code that uses the NavigableSet and NavigableMap interfaces.



So you could find Stack as it implements List

Does anyone else find it a bit odd that the Iterator given by Stack, doesn't return the elements in the LIFO order that the Stack is built for?

I find it odd that a stack would require an Iterator. And dont get me started about extending Vector....

Stack is legacy anyway. Use LinkedList/ArrayDeque instead.
