    - [Instructor] A linked list is a doubly linked collection of elements. Each entry in the list also holds a reference to the address of the next and the previous item in the list. The main advantage of using a linked list is that they are very quick for inserting and removing elements in the middle of a list. In this example, I have a class called Linked List Example. In the main method, I can create a linked list by saying LinkedList myList is equal to new LinkedList. I can specify in angle brackets that this is a list of strings. Now, I can add new elements using the add method; for example, I can do my list dot add and then add the string a and then I can add the letter b. I can also insert an element at any position I choose; for example, I could add the letter c in between a and b. To do this, I can use the add method again, but this time I add an extra argument before the c. I want to insert the c at index one, so I put a one as the first argument and the letter c as the second.…
