Basically, i feel that ignorance is worse. arrogance is just to show excess pride but people who are ignorant show how they actually are apathetic to some stuff. For example, those who are ignorant about disasters and stuff cannot feel sympathy for the victims of the disaster.

Both I guess. But a combination of the two is the worst.... and I know quite a few people who are like that.

for me arrogance is the worst they are just plain annoying to hear like i care if youre that good...while ignorance is a good spot to make a joke just for fun.

Of course both of them are bad, but I think that being arrogant and having excessive pride is worse than being ignorant and lacking knowledge or information…

Personally I always thought arrogance is worse. To try and simplify it, ignorance is the lack of understanding whether by personal choice, by lack of opportunity, or by physical/mental inabilities. Arrogance is ones expression of overbearing pride towards those considered inferior. While both can be considered bad, it's impossible to completely overcome ignorance. Every living, breathing person on this planet is ignorant in some facet of life. Arrogance on the other hand is done by choice. Someone has to come to a decision or not to exalt their work or being to others. Conversely, someone who is born ignorant and must work their whole life to gain understanding.

A different take would be to look at someone that expresses their ignorance. What usually bothers people is not the fact that they don't understand, but either the manner they express themselves or their choice to not try and correct it. If they don't want to correct it, they may (not everyone) feel that there is nothing to correct. While they are ignorant, I feel that it is more arrogant than anything else to believe that they are not ignorant. In this case, arrogance can be considered one's expression of the believed lack of ignorance. I personally believe that it is better to acknowledge ones ignorance than acknowledge a lack thereof since by nature we are all ignorant.

hmmm... i think Arrogance is worst...

you can fix Ignorance if the ignorant guy gets informed about how ignorant he is,
you cant fix Arrogance... once an arrogant guy always an arrogant guy,
he even gets more arrogant if you tell him he is.
