How to read JSON array in jQuery

I am using

jQuery
.load()
function to load the results from server and append it in my html:

$("#content").load('Get/Information?class=Arts&min=1',
function (responseText, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {
console.log(responseText);
// parseJSON(responseText);
});


In my controller I tried converting my jagged array from the model into a json object and then send it to the client:

public JsonResult GetInformation(string class, int min){
var stdObj = new Student();
string[][] information = stdObj.GetInformation(class, min);
return Json(information, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
}


And after this when I check the response through
console.log(responseText);

I have a jSon like string in the following format:

[
["93","Title-1","http://stackoverflow.com"],
["92"," Title-2","http://stackoverflow.com"],
["90"," Title-3","http://stackoverflow.com"],
["89"," Title-4","http://stackoverflow.com"],
["89"," Title-5","http://stackoverflow.com"],
null,null,null,null,null]


I am not sure if this a proper jSon, as from what I learn jSon is in name: value pairs, but here there are only values, considering this how can I read this string/array and print in following manner:

This just a representation(pseudo code) of how I required it to be handled:

for(int 1=0; i<response.length();i++){
$("#content").html('<h1>'+i.Id+'</h1>'+'<p>'+i.Title+'</p>'+'<span>'+i.url+'</span>')
.slideDown('slow');
// $("#content").html('<h1>39</h1>'+'<p>Title-1</p>'+'<span>http://stackoverflow.com</span>');
}

Answer

Use var dataArray = jQuery.parseJSON(response);
