    It'd point to itself (analogy: dog chasing it's tail). However, if you have a circularly linked list, it'd have no head, or everything could be the head (depending on how you're looking at it).

    May I ask why would you want a circularly linked list?

    thanks helloworld922

    this circularly linked list is just an assignment my lecturer gave me. im suppose to create a linked list classes that input 6 data and remove every 3rd data continuously in the linked list until 1 remain.

    e.g. 1 2 3 4 5 6 remove 3
    1 2 4 5 6 remove 6
    1 2 4 5 remove 4
    1 2 5 remove 2
    1 5 remove 5
    1

    i figured out the solutions already. thanks anyway (=
