Ahh, that is interesting. So...if it's not an int index then it's looking for a specific Object? This seems like a good Java interview question - pretty tricky IMO.

 

Yep! Integer is a subclass of Object, so Java assumes you're looking for a specific Integer object in your ArrayList, even if the actual subclass is something totally different, like Character.
