Write a program to read words from a file. Count the 
repeated or duplicated words. Sort it by maximum repeated or
duplicated word count.

What is abstract class or abstract method?
We cannot create instance for an abstract class. We can able to create instance for its subclass only. By specifying abstract keyword just before class, we can make a class as abstract class.

public abstract class MyAbstractClass{


Abstract class may or may not contains abstract methods. Abstract method is just method signature, it does not containes any implementation. Its subclass must provide implementation for abstract methods. Abstract methods are looks like as given below:

public abstract int getLength();

If you don’t make mistakes, you’re not working on hard enough problems. And that’s a big mistake.
