Q. What is the difference between Internet and Intranet ?
The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by a broad array of electronic and optical networking technologies.

Two types of errors
Syntax Errors
• They are caused by the code that somehow violates the rules of the language
• Easy to detect and fix errors
• The browser stops code interpretation on detecting one of these
–a = b + * c ;
–receiver = receiver + 2

Semantic Errors
• Occur when a statement executes and has an effect not intended by the
• Hard to detect during normal testing
• Often times occur only in unusual & infrequent circumstances
• the ‘+’ operator often results in unintended consequences. Remedy: Convert, before use.
