import java.util.*;
class LarArr
  public static void main(String args[])
     int size,i,num;
     Scanner sc=new Scanner(;
     System.out.println("Enter Size Of Array:");
     int a[]=new int[size];
     System.out.println("Enter The Array Elements:\n");

     int max=a[0];

       System.out.println("The Largest Element In The Array Is:"+max);

Program Explanation

i is initialized to 0 and incremented by 1 at each iteration of both the for loops.

First for loop reads n input numbers from user and stores them in array a[] from location 0 to n-1 assign the element located at 0 to max using max = a[0].

using second for loop visit each location serially from 1 to n-1.

if the element located in any position is greater than max, then assign the element as max by using max = a[i] finally max holds the maximum value in the list.
