Q1. Briefly explain the two major types of programming languages.
Ans. The two major types of programming languages are:
- Low Level Language
- High Level Language
- Low Level Languages:
Low Level languages (that is, machine languages and assembly languages) are machine-oriented and require extensive knowledge of computer circuitry.
- High Level Languages:
High Level Languages, (HLLs), on other hand, offer English like keywords, constructs for sequence, selection (decision) and iteration (looping) and use of variables and constants. Thus it is very easy to program with such languages compared to low level languages.
