: If I understand right, after the arrays are created, thier size will be fixed, for example, if we have 25 elements in an array, it will never be larger than 25 elements?? So in deleting an element that occurs at index 14, do we shift all the other array elements down to fill in the 14th location, or do we delete the data in that element, and leave it empty?
That's a personal choice. You can eitherkeep track of the size of the array or keep track of which spaces in the array are empty. Your implimentation could (concievibly) work either way. I don't think the physical representation of the array matters (as far as the spec is concerned). You just have to make sure that insert and delete work however you code your array
