User comments below. All of them might not be correct.

Ans is C.
It prints Vivekananda as the output by taking values from moves[] one by one and adding it to the 'j' then getting the remainder by dividing it with the length of chars[] then getting the character from chars[] at that position.

Ans is we have the Arrays Concept..Arrays can hold the similar type of data elements in adjacent memory locations..arrays can store only homogeneous elements..Arrays are fixed in the size..
when we initialize the arrays when we declare it than specifying the size of an array is optional..
here we chars array and moves(int aray)

here we have the for-each loop which is used to travel the arrays..for-each loop is safe Bcz no chances of getting the ArrayBounds exception..

here we are iterating through the int  array ..every time we are adding the received int value to the the variable j..

initially we received the value 6
here are performing % with size of char array Bcz to avoid the ArrayBounds Exception..performing % with x means output always less than x here we will get j with in the limit of the char array..
j=j%8; here 6th letter in the char array is will printed
now 5 will come so j will become 11
so i get printed similar for all other values..
