ArrayList<UserBO> usersList = new ArrayList<UserBO>();
for (int i = 0; i < stringList.size(); i++) {
ArrayList<String> list = stringList.get(i);
UserBO user = new UserBO();

Some ugly way, to store images in SQLite database. Just store images in sdcard and save the relevant path of those images in SQLite database.

In your need, put the images in either drawable folder or in asset folder then store its
name(with question ID or number also) in SQLite and use it in application.
