Hi Sayed,

Arrays are said to start at 0, in the sense that the first element is said to be at the '0th place' of the array. Square bracket notation ([]s) are used to represent arrays, and adding a number, or 'index', inside of those brackets indicates which place in the array we are interested in pulling a value from.

Thus, the following code would store "Basketball" in the bestSport String variable:

String[] sports = { "Basketball", "Baseball", "Tennis" };
String bestSport = sports[0];

Hope this helps!
