Games with lists are the best! Does that sound like an advertisement? Perhaps the best advertisement for a programming language is its frequent use. Let's advertise lists as we complete this task: enter numbers m and n, enter n strings and put them in a list. Then perform a simple manipulation: move the first m strings to the end of the list

Hint - list.remove(0) removes an element from a list and also returns it, so you can wrap the return in a list.add statement. which adds it to the end of the list i.e list.add(list.remove(0))

Spent way too much time doing this task, but while trying to figure it out, did learn a lot, so it wasn't all a waste. Tried using some methods as suggested by others, but found it wasn't necessary, in fact, it didn't work (like .sublist() & .addAll()), as you need to create more than one list, which is against the Condition of the task. in the end, simple methods(.get(), .add(), .remove()) was all it was needed. Again, it's best not to over-think it and not make it more complicated than necessary. Happy coding! :)

It took too long to figure out what they were asking for. Previous comments were very helpful. Thanx all.

I am a little bit confused for the removal function. But it seems that it is looping the i but not the list itself so it doesn't need to use Iterator.

For example, the list {"one", "two", "three"} should be displayed as one two three

I did this with for loops and removed the "M" items with for loop. Why don't I get a ConcurrentModificationException with it ?

Now that was fun. Probably the best exercise I've done so far.

In case you solve it, is help for other people. First number from input 8(you add 8 Strings to the list) Second number from input 4(you move first 4 elements from the list to the end of the list) Short: you add 8, you copy 4 to the end of the list, you remove the first 4 from the list.
