Your task is to make them pass, using Eclipse Collections.

[What is Eclipse Collections?]
Eclipse Collections is previously known as GS Collections, a feature-rich open source Java collections framework. It has both object and primitive containers; rich APIs available for eager and lazy iteration patterns; mutable and immutable collections; and additional container types not available in the JDK, such as Bag and Multimap.

At JavaOne 2015, it was announced that GS Collections was migrated to the Eclipse Foundation, and renamed as Eclipse Collections.
