Your doubt is very good ...
Vector object . elements() returns an object of a class which is implementing the interface Enumeration...
i hope u already know that an interface can hold an object reference of its subclass so that happened here ....
but the name of the subclass of that interface Enumeration is not disclosed...

so that's it u can mail me if u have any doubts...
