Java Code:

import java.util.*;

public class Exercise20 {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  // create an empty linked list
  LinkedList <String> c1 = new LinkedList <String> ();
            c1.add("Red");
          c1.add("Green");
          c1.add("Black");
          c1.add("White");
          c1.add("Pink");
          System.out.println("Original linked list: " + c1); 
     // Retrieve but does not remove, the first element of a linked list
    String x = c1.peekFirst();
    System.out.println("First element in the list: " + x);
    System.out.println("Original linked list: " + c1);   
 }
} 

Sample Output:

Original linked list: [Red, Green, Black, White, Pink]                 
First element in the list: Red
