Strings are ordered collections of characters, which are strings of length 1. The characters in a string can be accessed using bracket notation.
Arrays are ordered collections of items, which can be strings, numbers, other arrays, etc. The items/elements/entries stored in an array can be accessed using bracket notation.
Strings are immutable, whereas arrays can be changed.
