Array: Sort Students

Question: Write a program that prompts the user to enter the number of students, the student’s names, and their
scores and prints student names in decreasing order of their scores.
Assume the name is a string without spaces, use the Scanner’s next() method to read a name.

Sample Input output:

Enter number of students:
5
Enter names and scores of students:
s1 99
s2 80
s3 100
s4 60
s5 95
Score of s4 is 60
Score of s2 is 80
Score of s5 is 95
Score of s1 is 99
Score of s3 is 100
