thank you ,but I want to get the 5 values without sorting
Just use Array.Sort method which will sort all the values in the array in ascending order then fetch first 5 values.

thank you for your care ,but I want to get the 5 values without sorting .
You can sort your array using Sort function and pick up first 5 elements:

Code to sort your Array:

C#
int[] intArray = new int[5] { 8, 10, 2, 6, 3 };
Array.Sort(intArray);
