Hi, Clone method creates a copy of the object.so,object 'a' is cloned and is stored in 'obj' array.Now length of 'obj' array is 3.Let us go through the loop now. when i=0, ia=obj so ia,obj refer to a. hence ia is same as a which is 1. when i=1 ia=obj ia,obj refer to a so ia is same as a which is 1 again. when i=2 ia=obj ia,obj refer to a so ia is same as a which is 2 Hope this helps...

Can you explain how the array length is 3? We are making a clone of two dimensional array into one dimensional array.

Hi, The length of array a is 3.so obj.length is also 3.That is 'a' has three elements. Dimensional arrays are considered as array of arrays. Now, a has three elements which are references to other array.So a.length is 3.
a is again a array of 2 elements .so,length of a is 2. length of a and a is 3. Hope this helps...
