Can someone explain why the output to the following code is: 0 0 3 0



I would think there would be an ArrayOutOfBounds exception in the first for loop because it tries to set arr[4] = 0.

Thanks.

Hi Jason,
In the first iteration i=1 which sets arr[1]=0 .The resulting array is {1,0,3,4}
In the second iteration i=0 which sets arr[0]=0. The resulting array is {0,0,3,4}
In the third iteration i=3 which sets arr[3]=0. The resulting array is {0,0,3,0}
In the last iteration i=0 which sets arr[0]=0. The resulting array is {0,0,3,0}

Hi Sravani,

In the first iteration i=1 which sets arr[1]=0 .The resulting array is {1,0,3,4}
In the second iteration i=0 which sets arr[0]=0. The resulting array is {0,0,3,4}
In the third iteration i=3 which sets arr[3]=0. The resulting array is {0,0,3,0}
In the last iteration i=0 which sets arr[0]=0. The resulting array is {0,0,3,0}


I guess I don't understand why it isn't:

In the first iteration i=1 which sets arr[1]=0 .The resulting array is {1,0,3,4}
In the second iteration i=2 which sets arr[2]=0. The resulting array is {1,0,0,4}
In the third iteration i=3 which sets arr[3]=0. The resulting array is {1,0,0,0}
In the last iteration i=4 which attempts to set arr[4]=0, and throws an exception.

I thought that since the array is {1,2,3,4}, the index values on each iteration would be 1,2,3 and 4.

Please help.

Thanks.

I think I get it now, the resulting array is used in the for-each loop, not just the initial array.

Thanks for your help.

in the first iteration i initialized with arr[0] means i=1 so in the loop a[i=1]=0 which actually second element in the array.

same explanation for the third iteration.

I hope this gives you clear idea.

There is no initial or resulting array. You have only one array. In your example the for loop is translated to something like this:
