		//adding elements in the list
		arrList.add("100");
		arrList.add("200");
		arrList.add("300");
		arrList.add("400");
		arrList.add("500");

		//searching element "300"
		boolean isFound = arrList.contains("300");
		if(isFound == false)
			System.out.println("Element is not found in the list");
		else
			System.out.println("Element is found in the list");

	}
