Q#10. True or false
public class Arrays1 {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int[] a1 = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
int a2[];
float f1[] = new float[5];
a2 = a1;
for(int i = 0; i < a2.length; i++)
f1[i] = (float)a2[i]++;
for(int i = 0; i < f1.length; i++)
System.out.println(
"a1[" + i + "] = " + f1[i]);
}
}
a. Program will give compiler error, because incompatable array type
b. output will be 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0
c. output will be null null null null null
d. program will give complier error, because possible use of array before its
initialization.
e. will give 1.0 2.0 3.0 4.0 5.0
the answer given is e.
how does a2=a1 compile both being arrays?thanks in advance.

a2 is, after the assignment, an alias to the same object pointed by a1.
Being arrays of the same primitive type keeps the compiler happy.
