    1. What does it mean to say that a programming language is machine independent?
    Ans :
    A programming language that enables a programmer to write programs that is less independent of a particular type of computer. Such languages are considered high-level languages.
    The assembly languages are considered low-level because they are very close to machine languages.
    2. Compare and contrast four different programming paradigms.
    Ans :
    There are hundreds of programming languages in use today. Some programming languages are specifically designed for use in certain applications. Different programming languages follow different approaches to solving programming problems
    A programming paradigm is an approach to solving programming problems. A programming paradigm may consist of many programming languages.
    The Common Programming Paradigms are
     Imperative or Procedural Programming
     Object-Oriented Programming
     Functional Programming
     Logic Programming

    Imperative Programming Paradigms:
    In this paradigm, a program is a series of statements that ...
