array []:It is one dimensional array of size thee and its content are address of union emp.

ptr: It is pointer to array of union.

=(*(*&array+2))->name //ptr=&array
=(*(array+2))->name //from rule *&p=p
=array[2]->name //from rule *(p+i)=p[i]
=(&e3)->name //array[2]=&e3
=*(&e3).name //from rule ->= (*).
=e3.name //from rule *&p=p
