Clone will copy the structure of a data where as Copy will copy the complete structure as well as data.

string[] arr2 = arr1; //copy
string[] arr4 = (string[])arr3.Clone();

String.Clone() give pointer value(ie Current memory Reference)

String.Clone() Create an instance in Heap Memory and give pointer value(ie New Memory Reference)

Creates a new instance of String with the same value as a specified String. 

Returns a reference to this instance of String.

clone()-----returns the reference of an object in the memory

copy()------copy the structure and data of the object.
