in JavaCaps mock test (Title-10): http://www.javacaps.com/scjp_util.html
question #2.Which of the following allows duplicates , and introduces positional indexing.?
[a] Set
[b] Map
[c] Iterator
[d] List
To my surprise, the answer is b?! As I remember, Map doesnot allow duplicates in the collection, right?
who can help me to clear this?? Many thanks in advance!

Hi Jenny,
You're right. A Map cannot have duplicate keys. Believe the correct answer is 'd' List; which allows duplicates and allows you to specify an object's position within the list.
Check the API when in doubt
Hope that helps.
