Q.  In javaScript when should I use `new Array()` ?

A.  To create an empty array you can do:

let a = new Array(); let a = new Array; let a = []; // BEST
The last one is the most compact so I prefer it. If you want to create an array of known size, there is only one way:
let a = new Array(100);
So this is when to use `new Array`.
