  1. import java.util.Scanner;
  2. public class Position
  3. {
  4.     public static void main(String[] args) 
  5.     {
  6.         int n;
  7.         Scanner s = new Scanner(;
  8.         System.out.print("Enter no. of elements you want in array:");
  9.         n = s.nextInt();
  10.         int a[] = new int[n];
  11.         System.out.println("Enter all the elements:");
  12.         for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) 
  13.         {
  14.             a[i] = s.nextInt();
  15.         }
  16.         System.out.print("Enter the k th position at which you want to check number:");
  17.         int k = s.nextInt();
  18.         System.out.println("Number:"+a[k-1]);
  19.     }
  20. }
