Q: 1: What does QBASIC means?
Ans: QBASIC is the abbreviation of Quick Beginners All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code.
It is a language which was invented to teach students a fundamental concept of

Q: 2: Who invented the BASIC Language?

Ans: In 1963 two Americans John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz developed BASIC (Beginners
All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) language for computers at DarmouthCollege.

Q: 3: What are the basic rules of a QBASIC program?

Every QBASIC program should have the following rules:
1-Every program statement should begin with line number.
2-Every program should end with an END statement.
3-There should be no repetition of lines.

Q:4 : How many types of variables are used in QBASIC?

Ans: Two types of variables are used in QBASIC. They are called Numeric Variables and String

Q: 5: What are Numeric Variables?

Ans: Numeric Variables are those variables that can store numeric values.

Q: 6: What are String Variables?

Ans: String Variables are those variables that can store sequence of characters.

Q: 7: What is a constant?
Ans: A Constant is a quantity whose value cannot be changed; it cannot be changed like a
Variable. There are Numeric Constants and String Constants.

Q:8: What is a Numeric Constant?

Ans: Numeric Constant consists of integers, single-precision or double- precision numbers.

Q: 9: What is a String Constant?

Ans: A String Constant is a sequence of alphanumeric characters enclosed in double
quotation marks. The maximum length of a String Constant is 255 characters.

Q: 10 What is a Flow Chart?
Ans: Flowchart is the pictorial representation of a problem/task using some symbols. Each
symbols plays an important part in performing a particular task.

Q: 11: What is an Algorithm?

Ans: It is a sequence of steps arranged in logical order written in a simple language for solving
any problem.

Q: 12: What are logical errors?

Ans: Such errors are called Logical Errors that are caused in a program due to improper use
of symbols and date or wrong use of formula.

Q:13: What are Syntax Errors?

Ans: Such errors that arise due to limitation of computer are called Syntax Errors.

Q:14: What are reserved words or Key words?

Ans: IN QBASIC some words have fixed meanings and cannot be used as a variable, such
words are called Key Words or reserved Words. Such as, Auto, New, List etc.

Q:15: What is the use of REM statement?

Ans: We use REM statement to add remarks in our QBASIC programs.
