C++ array takes input more than its size

I used to know that arrays in c++ doesn’t elements more than specified only except resizable array or using dynamic memory allocation. But in the simple code below if I put a value in the 3rd or 4th index it compiles and runs without error, when I put value in 5th index it compiles fine but gives a runtime error and for the 6th index compiles and runs fine and it seem to go on like this randomly.

Is it some concepts I didnt know or I did something wrong?

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main(){

    int arr[2]={2,2};

    arr[0] = 1;
    arr[1] = 2;
    arr[2] = 3;
    arr[4] = 4;
    arr[5] = 5; //gives a runtime error
    arr[6] = 6;
