no, you can't pass a sub-array without copying data
you could pass the array and the first and last indicies to the method and then the method could be programmed to just look at the subarray between those indicies
if you have an array of objects just go ahead and copy them, only the references will copy so it won't waste much space

Part of array cannot be passed to a method directly.
If u want a sub array, the required elements are needed to be copied onto a new array
