You need simply import CITS2200.Deque, which is an interface that can take a generic parameter

You then want to declare your class:

public class DequeCyclic<E> implements Deque<E> ...

This specifies that your class takes a generic parameter, E, and passess that generic parameter 
into the interface it implements.

Do note that the use of generics is optional and you can instead just use Object. If you do not 
provide a generic parameter, it defaults to Object. Hence Deque<Object> and Deque are the exact 
same thing.

The auto-tester tests your code as just DequeCyclic, so if you implement it using generics it 
will simply test DequeCyclic<Object>, so you can get away with just implementing object
