The elements of an array are stored successively so that the computer can keep track the first element’s address. It is helpful to the user or administrator as they can easily search for the latest element they run or used. The previous elements or addresses are calculated. These have been tracked before new elements are added.

The computer will only calculate the disk space they occupy, etc. This can be easily remembered by comparing it to you, getting and wearing the shirt on the top pile of your cabinet knowing that you have 10 shirts below it. Once you add a new address on your computer in your next use, it will be then the one that is being tracked.
