Obfuscated with the output of following code


output is
true
true
false

why the line 1 outputs false even though i am comparing array instance with Object class.

You didn't initialize the content of your array, so c1[1] is null. null is not an instance of anything.

Hello,

You have not initialized the array elements explicitly to point towards any object.
When you put array this way, the Objects references are initialized with a value of
null.

By above code, you can interpret it something similar to this


Hope this helps,
