Answer / jeet

Arrays are basically used to store data which are of
similar type in contiguos memory locations.
Tables on the other hand you can think it as a list which
is used for lookup/referencing, for example when doing a
SEARCH/SEARCH ALL.

subscript and the indexing searching an element into table.
