Discussion Question 1 Write a 200- to 300-word short-answer response to the following questions: What are the similarities and differences of the array and parallel array structures? What is an example of data that is appropriately stored in a parallel array structure? The similarities between an array and a parallel array are they both contain at least on element that is referred to by writing the array followed by its index number enclosed by brackets. For example, say the element is Number, it would be written as Number[0]. Also, they both have subscripts which are the numbers that are enclosed in the brackets, and they can be in some sort of repetition structure. The differences between an array and a parallel array is an array is displayed as list and has one element with the subscript enclosed in brackets, and a parallel array has more than one array and can be displayed as a table rather than a list, it has more elements than one.
