Below is an excerpt from a C#2012 book.
Question:
1. length specifies the size of the array to contain 6 elements, 2X3.  What is the lowerBoundsn for?
2.What is 0-baseed and 10-based referenced here?


The CreateInstance()method has many overloads to create multidimensional arrays and to create arrays
that are not 0-based. The following example creates a two-dimensional array with 2 X3 elements. The first
dimension is 1-based; the second dimension is 10-based:
int[] lengths = { 2, 3 };
int[] lowerBounds = { 1, 10 };
Array racers = Array.CreateInstance(typeof(Person), lengths, lowerBounds);

Thank you.

What is the lowerBoundsn for?
The starting index. Normally arrays are indexed from zero. When you change the lower bounds, you change at what index the array begins from.

What is 0-baseed and 10-based referenced here?
The author is just rephrasing that each array inside of racers starts at an index other than zero--the first starts at 1; the second from 10.

The length is 2x3 elements or 2 rows by 3 columns.  the pair of number for lower bound {1, 10}, indicates the racer array element can be access as below?
racer[1,10], racer[1,11], racer[1,12]
racer[2,10],racer[2,11], racer[2,12]

Thank you.
