array is the collection of object and it contains references
so if i declare an array of int type and store values as 1,2,3....
so how array is storing it as int type or reference.


Thanks

Hi Deepak,
Array is an OBJECT that can store both primitive and object type values.



This array stores primitive type elements of int type.

No. An array itself is an object!

Yes, it may have either primitives or references to the objects.

The answer to your question on line #2 is in line #1 itself. It all goes with the way you declare, as the declaration has to mention what type of data you are going to store!
