Question:

Compare the two following sentences. Each one says the same thing, but using different words: A) Being of sound body and mind, Angelica stepped forward and prepared to make her statement, which only a few had ever heard before. B) Angelica stepped forward and, being of sound body and mind, prepared to make a statement, her statement, one that only a few had ever heard before. Which sentence is better? Why?

Of these two sentences, A is the better choice. A is able to get its message across more concisely (i.e. fewer words) than B. Furthermore, A is a more direct statement than B, which you can easily see when you count the commas. B has 4 commas, while A has only 2, but since there are only 3 thoughts in this sentence, that means that at least one of the commas in B must be interrupting one of its thoughts. Finally, A is the better choice because it presents the information in a more logical order. In A, Angelica is described before her actions are introduced, and her statement is described only after the statement is introduced in the sentence.

Question:

What are arrays and why do we use them?

An array is a collection of things. These things could be numbers (like ints or doubles), strings, objects, or even other arrays! We use arrays as simple, efficient ways to keep groups of related things together, just like you or I might use a list in real life. For example, if you're a teacher, you might want to keep track of the grades of everyone in your class. How might a program do that? With an array! Or, if you're building a train, you would want to have multiple train cars, all attached to each other. Again, in a program, we can do that with an array. The applications of arrays are seemingly endless, which is why understanding them is so important for any computer science student.
