6.       What is library function?
Answer: Library function are also called as built in function which proved by the QBASIC System. These function allows the programmer to use them according to the requirement.

8.       What are the types of library function?
Answer: String library function and Mathematical functions are two types of library function.
9.       Define User Define Function.
Answer: It is written and stored by the programmer to do specific task FUNCTION ЕЕ. END FUNCTION statement can be used to define it.
10.   What is string library function?
Answer: String library function can be defined as set of alphanumeric characters. LEFT$, MID$, STR$ etc.
11.   What is the use of LEFT$ Function? Explain with example.
Answer: LEFT$ is used to extract the specific number of characters beginning from the left most character of the string.
12.   What is the use of VAL function?
Answer: VAL function is comment a string expression a consisting of digits in to a numeric value.
13.   What SQR function does?

1.       What is array?
Answer: An array is the collection of similar data items that can be represented by a single variable name.
2.       What are the advantages of using array in the program?
Answer: Te advantages of using array in the program are as follows:
a.       An array reduces the number of variables in a program because a single array can save large number of data.
b.      Using arrays, we can access any data item efficiently just by specifying the index of that item.
c.       Array are simple to understand and use.

3.       What is single dimensional array?
Answer: The array having only one subscript is called one or single dimension array.
4.       What is multi dimensional array?
Answer: The array having more than one subscript is called two or multi dimension array.

Answer: Searching in array means the process of determining whether some value exists or not in the array.
8.       What is DIM statement?
Answer: DIM statement is used to declare an array variable in the program.
9.       Define sequential searching?
Answer: Sequential search will move from one item in an array to the next in search of something.
10.   What is binary searching of array?
Answer: Binary search will “split” an array in half during each “pass” or search, in order to determine which have contains the target.
