Answer It is often a requirement of a program to group items of same type say sales of an item X in Northern Region in one element to achieve preciseness and to make programming clearer, therefore sometimes repetitive data structures like array are used to group items of same type. Also, separate declaration of data element of similar type would make a program long and difficult to understand.
