User comments below. All of them might not be correct.

Ans is D.

When we are using clone() method we have to handle CloneNotSupportedException using try-catch or throws keyword otherwise it raises compilation error.

Here TreeSet Data structure is used.

--Here,default Constructor of treeset is created.
Constructs a new, empty tree set, sorted according to the natural ordering of its elements.

--Add() method is used to insert the String elements into this treeset.
--->add(E e)
Adds the specified element to this set if it is not already present.

--Then Clone() method is used which creates copy of this treeset and assigned to another treeset instance.
Returns a shallow copy of this TreeSet instance.

--Then one more string element is added into this newtree object and printed.

Output will be:
Ascending order of the elements is maintained.
