 4    Every programming language, like languages such as English, has rules which must be followed. The rules that defines the legal sequences of symbolic elements in a language is refers as SYNTAX. The building blocks of programming language are keywords (While_Loop, Repeat_Untill) which have a special meaning in the programming language.

4    Pseudocode is one of the tools that can be used to write a preliminary plan which can be developed into a computer program.

o       It is not a standard language, its purpose is to describe the algorithm in a form that can easily be understood and then translated into the actual programming code required.

4    The syntax of the language to be used and the fine detail of the program are ignored until writing the source code.
