e is answer since we are removing unknown source here with .i2.remove()

option e as we cannot modify CopyOnWriteArrayList never changes during the lifetime of the iterator, so interference is impossible The iterator will not reflect additions, removals, or changes to the list since the iterator was created and it throws exception
