string.charAt( )-This method return you the position of the character specified by the  index of the parameter.

On the execution of the code ,the program code show us an error i.e java.lang .Null Pointer Exception because  we have not initialized the value of string array.

javaerrornullpointerexception.java


public class javaerrornullpointerexception {

  public static void main(String args[]) {
  String string[] new String[5];  
  System.out.println(string[1].charAt(1));

  }
