 Q1. Where do we generally use comparable interface ?Core Java
Ans. Implementing Comparable interface means that the elements of the class are comparable i.e the class provides the implementation of compareTo method that would help comparing the elements.

This is usually required if we are planning to sort elements of a collection, If compareTo method is not defined , the sorting class / method could never understand a way to compare its elements in order to sort them.
