Wording in Access Array Data with Indexes lesson

Tell us what’s happening:
The lesson states:

Example

const array = [50, 60, 70];
array[0];
const data = array[1];

array[0] is now 50 , and data has the value 60 .

Why does it say array[0] is “now” 50? Wasn’t it 50 already by virtue of line 1? It wasn’t changed to 50 by the “array[0];” statement?

Yeah, I see what you mean.

But they mean “now” as in “at this pointin time”, as a result of those three lines. They don’t mean “it was oe thing but changed to something else”.
