Question says:Given a properly prepared String array containing five elements,which range of results could a proper invocation of Arrays.binarySearch() produce?

A. 0 through 4
B. 0 through 5
C. -1 through 4
D. -1 through 5
E. -5 through 4
F. -5 through 5
G. -6 through 4
H. -6 through 5

Output is G ie -6 through 4.My doubt is why the range starts from -6.

Thanks in advance.
