Hi All,

Please refer to the following code :



Q. Why is there a compile time exception at 2 ?
Q. Is a5 a 1-D array & a6 a 2-D array ?

Hi,

Q. Why is there a compile time exception at 2 ?
R. Because of the [] that is before the a4 identifier. The first part of the line says that you're declaring int arrays, the first one being named "a3". Then, after the coma, you must have only identifiers, as following:

int []a3, a4;

Q. Is a5 a 1-D array & a6 a 2-D array ?
R. Yes. a5 is an int[], and a6 is an array of int[].
