    A. Data entity in structured techniques:
    1. Data entity in structure techniques have Global data where this data is accessible for all of the functions( function 1, function 2 and etc.). that means any function can access Global data.
    (functions can modify/update)

    2. Data entity in structure techniques can be of local data contained to that function or procedure. The function will use it for intermediate storage for doing some calculations/applying some logic.
    - For example: If there are 50 functions in a structured program then all these 50 functions will have access to global data member. There is always a chance this global data gets corrupted/accidently gets updated by some other function.

    It is very difficult to debug & find out which function has caused this data corruption. It's a developer's nightmare when there is a large ...
