Arrays can of following types: 1. One dimensional (1-D) arrays or Linear arrays 2. Multi dimensional arrays (a) Two dimensional (2-D) arrays or Matrix arrays (b) Three dimensional arrays 1. One dimensional (1-D) arrays or Linear arrays: In it each element is represented by a single subscript. The elements are stored in consecutive memory locations. E.g. A , A , ….., A [N]. 2. Multi dimensional arrays: (a) Two dimensional (2-D) arrays or Matrix arrays: In it each element is represented by two subscripts. Thus a two dimensional m x n array A has m rows and n columns and contains m*n elements. It is also called matrix array because in it the elements form a matrix. E.g. A   has 2 rows and 3 columns and 2*3 = 6 elements. (b) Three dimensional arrays: In it each element is represented by three subscripts. Thus a three dimensional m x n x l array A contains m*n*l elements. E.g. A    has 2*3*2 = 12 elements.
