    Question Can an int array contain a short or byte?

    Edit: Sorry. I should post this in a different area. I'm looking for a delete button.... Can't find it yet.


    I was asked the following True/False question on a test.

    An array declared as an int can contain elements of different primitive types.
    True or False?

    I hated the question the moment I read it.

    For some background, the textbook said the following:

    "All values stored in an array have the same type (or are at least compatible)."

    The textbook also said:

    "A value stored in an array is sometimes called an array element...."

    What do you think? Is it true or false?
    "An array declared as an int can contain elements of different primitive types."


    Is 00001111 "contained in" 0000000000001111 if the array is composed of the latter "type" of data?

    Don't worry about it. A moderator will delete this post and move the old one to the appropriate forum.

    Are there actually any moderators on this site? If so, why don't they delete the " Buy Registered and Unregistered Swiss, Austrian passports + id cards" posts that keep appearing daily lol?

    As far as I know there is one active moderator and he is on vacation. He will see your post when he returns. There are other issues he will probably want to deal with as well.
