Answer is B....

Initially we are adding the elements to the list with values "one","one","two","three","four".
Printing list will print all the elements inside the ArrayList
Collections.fill method replaces all the elements in the specified list with the specified element.
So all the elements will be replaced by "one".
Next we are adding element "five" to the list.
Now printing list will print [one one one one one five]
Collections.frequency method will return the number of times the specified element is present in the specified list.
Since "one" element is present five times in the list,frequency is 5
