  • It can contain duplicates


  • Immutable collection i.e. changes to elements are not possible
  • Indicated by ()
  • Again can be homogenous and heterogeneous i.e. store data of same or different data type
  • Duplicates can be present

  • It makes use of {} symbol


  • Stores data in form of key-value pairs.
  • Indicated by {} with each item having : inbetween
  • Key has to be immutable object
