Following will not just print the best rather print all in the order -

public static void main(String[] args) {
        ArrayList<String>list = new ArrayList<>();
        list.add( "rat");
        list.add( "cat");
        list.add( "abcxyz");        
        list.add( "abc");
        list.add( "xyz");
        list.add( "ratcatabc");
        list.add( "xyzcatratabc" );

        Map<String, Integer> map = new HashMap<String, Integer>();

        for(int i=0; i<list.size()-1; i++){
            String s = list.get(i);         
            for(int j=0; j < list.size(); j++){
                    Integer v = map.get(list.get(j));
                    if(v == null){
                        map.put(list.get(j), 0);
                        map.put(list.get(j), v+1);
