The MIN(Of Pets) should be returning a Pet object. From the example posted on Microsoft's website for MIN, they have their Pets class implementing IComparable.

For now, from a basic programming standpoint:

foreach (Pet pet in pets)
            {
                if (pet.Age == min)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Pet name is {0}, ID is {1}.", pet.Name, pet.ID  );
                }
            }

Hi,

First of all, you dont have ID property in your Pet class.

Just check with this code.

Add an ID property to your Pet class or remove ID from where you create a pets array.

Pet min = pets.Min();

You get the Pet object. Now access
min.Age and min.Name wherever you require.

Hi,

Check this,
Pet[] pets = { new Pet { Name="Barley",ID=1 , Age=8 },
                   new Pet { Name="Boots",ID=2, Age=4 },
                   new Pet { Name="Whiskers",ID=3, Age=1 } };

            Pet pet = pets.OrderBy(c => c.Age).FirstOrDefault();
            if (pet != null)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("The youngest is ID {0}.", pet.ID);
                Console.WriteLine("The youngest is Name {0}.", pet.Name);
                Console.WriteLine("The youngest is age {0}.", pet.Age);
            }
