    Looks like homework/coursework so I am moving to the homework and coursework forums under Engineering, Computer Science, & Technology.

    aggarwal, have you tried looking up any of these terms in your book or on the internet? We don't do your work for you, but we will help when you are stuck or confused on something.

    This is pretty easy. Look them up online. Most of the things listed should be in the first chapter of your book.

    #1 is a design process, for any software engineering project. It's the 'recommended' flow when creating a program. So... what do you think problem definition is? Well, if you are creating a piece of software, you need to know what purpose it serves, right? That means you and your team (if you have one) must sit down together with the customer to find out the specifications to meet their demands. After you've done that, it's time to design how you're going to tackle the problem (alg. development).

    Hopefully that's a start for you... I won't do the rest.
