        list.add(7); list.add(0); list.add(5);
        print(list.remove((Integer) 7));
        print(list.remove(new Integer(7)));
        print(list.remove(new Integer(10)));

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

Ans is we have the AL Concept
AL is Advanced version of the Array where arrays are fixed in the size and arrays can store homogeneous elements where as AL are Growble in size and can store heterogeneous elements and AL can allow the null insertion and allows Duplicate elements and insertion order is preserved and AL implements RandomAccess interface

here we create the AL with the Integer so it will store only Integer objects in it..using the add() we added the 3,10,1,2,7,0,5..all these are primitives than autoboxing will perform which converts into Primitives into we are calling the remove method by passing 2 so it will remove the object at location 2 which is we are calling the remove with the Integer Object so it will remove and returns true if it contains otherwise it will return 7 is there so it will remove than will return true so it will print x using ternary next passing the 2 so it will remove the value at the location location we have calling object 7 which is not present so it will remove false so we are printing the y similar to other calls also..finally we have the 2 elements so size is 2
