The following gives a type safety warning which I am unable to lose, what is wrong?

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.Random;
public class ArrayL
{
     public static void main(String[] args)
     {
       
          Scanner Input = new Scanner(System.in);
          int Cnt = Input.nextInt();
          ArrayList[] Hand = new ArrayList[Cnt];
          for(int i=0;i<Cnt;i++)
          {
             Hand[i] = new ArrayList<Integer>();
               for(int a =0;a<5;a++)
               {
                    Random Num = new Random();
                    int NumC= Num.nextInt()%4;
                    Hand[i].add(NumC);        ///////////WARNING
               }
          }
          for(int i=0;i<Cnt;i++)
          {
               Iterator T = Hand[i].iterator();
               while (T.hasNext())
               {
                    System.out.print(T.next() + ",");
               }
               System.out.println();
          }
     }
}

Type safety: The method add(Object) belongs to the raw type ArrayList. References to generic type ArrayList<E> should be parameterized

> ArrayList[] Hand = new ArrayList[Cnt];
should be

ArrayList<Integer>[] Hand = new ArrayList<Integer>[Cnt];

Tried that, gives:

Cannot create a generic array of ArrayList<Integer>

May not be able to do this:
http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~matuszek/cit594-2006/Pages/coping-with-generics.html

You can try this:
                ArrayList<ArrayList<Integer>> l = new ArrayList<ArrayList<Integer>>(Cnt);
                ArrayList<Integer>[] Hand = (ArrayList<Integer>[]) l.toArray();

Why don't you use ArrayList<ArrayList<Integer>> instead of ArrayList<Integer>[]

This adds the following warning:

Type safety: The cast from Object[] to ArrayList<Integer>[] is actually checking against the erased type ArrayList[]

Don't think you can get rid of that waring using an array (as you cannot create a array of generics), would instead need to use collection

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Random;
import java.util.Scanner;
public class ArrayL
{
     public static void main(String[] args)
     {
       
          Scanner Input = new Scanner(System.in);
          int Cnt = Input.nextInt();
          List<List<Integer>> Hand = new ArrayList<List<Integer>>(Cnt);
          for(int i=0;i<Cnt;i++)
          {
             Hand.add(new ArrayList<Integer>());
               for(int a =0;a<5;a++)
               {
                    Random Num = new Random();
                    int NumC= Num.nextInt()%4;
                    Hand.get(i).add(NumC);        ///////////WARNING
               }
          }
          for(int i=0;i<Cnt;i++)
          {
               Iterator T = Hand.get(i).iterator();
               while (T.hasNext())
               {
                    System.out.print(T.next() + ",");
               }
               System.out.println();
          }
     }
}

your other option if you want to use array it to suppress the warning:

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.Random;
public class ArrayL
{
      @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
     public static void main(String[] args)
     {
       
          Scanner Input = new Scanner(System.in);
          int Cnt = Input.nextInt();
          ArrayList[] Hand = new ArrayList[Cnt];
          for(int i=0;i<Cnt;i++)
          {
             Hand[i] = new ArrayList<Integer>();
               for(int a =0;a<5;a++)
               {
                    Random Num = new Random();
                    int NumC= Num.nextInt()%4;
                    Hand[i].add(NumC);
               }
          }
          for(int i=0;i<Cnt;i++)
          {
               Iterator T = Hand[i].iterator();
               while (T.hasNext())
               {
                    System.out.print(T.next() + ",");
               }
               System.out.println();
          }
     }
}
