The array bound to query.

If Ty is an array type that has at least I dimensions, the type query holds the number of elements in the dimension specified by I. If Ty is not an array type or its rank is less than I, or if I is zero and Ty is of type "array of unknown bound of U", the type query holds the value 0.
