These languages are quite close to the processor but not even understandable for human being e.g. machine language, assembly language.
Q.18. Define High Level Languages.Ans.
These languages are quite close the human languages like English language andfar from machine language e.g. FORTRAN, BASIC, C/C++, VB.
Q.19. What is an Assembler?Ans.
 Assembler is a program that translates an assembly language program intomachine code.
Q.20. What is a Compiler?Ans.
Compiler is a program that translates a program written in high-level language intomachine code. It reads the whole program before executing.
