for the second expression, it will be 22.
inside heap--> 1 String Array object,10 String Objects
inside String Literal pool--> 1 String Array object,10 String Objects.


Correct me if I'm wrong.

Another argument now I think it's 1

cos' as it is a String "array object" it doesn't create an instance in the pool.

Initially only the array itself will be created with null references.
The actual number of objects created by the JVM will always depend on the actual content of the arry when creating arrays of object references.

You're wrong. The answer is 2.

This thread appears to have become more complex than is necessary to answer the original question - which has nothing to do with "the pool" (the apparently abstract concept that few understand but many like to talk about).
