Collection<Collection> collection = new LinkedList<LinkedList>();
Core Java
Ans. No. It will result in a type mismatch error.

is a valid initialization as collection being reference of "Collection" class can hold object of derived Class "LinkedList" due to runtime Polymorphism. Runtime polymorphism is not applicable to type arguments.
