In Dan's exam, Array Assignments q 3 explaination:
All array types implement the Serializable interface and may be assigned to a reference of type Serializable.

Where in API it says that arrays implement Serializable interface?

Sorry. It is in JLS:

There is no permitted conversion from any array type to any interface type,
except to the interface types java.io.Serializable and Cloneable, which
are implemented by all arrays.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
