  • Callback Mechanism
  • Asynchronous Processing
  • Abstract and Encapsulate method

48) What is Nullable Types in C#?
Variable types does not hold null values so to hold the null values we have to use nullable types. So nullable types can have values either null or other values as well.
Eg: Int? mynullablevar = null;
49) Why to use “Nullable Coalescing Operator” (??) in C#?
Nullable Coalescing Operator can be used with reference types and nullable value types. So if the first operand of the expression is null then the value of second operand is assigned to the variable. For example,
double? myFirstno = null;
double mySecno;
mySecno = myFirstno ?? 10.11;


50) What is the difference between “as” and “is” operators in C#?

  • “as” operator is used for casting object to type or class.
  • “is” operator is used for checking the object with type and this will return a Boolean value.

51) Define Multicast Delegate in C#?

A delegate with multiple handlers are called as multicast delegate. The example to demonstrate the same is given below

public delegate void CalculateMyNumbers(int x, int y);
int x = 6;
int y = 7;
CalculateMyNumbers addMyNumbers = new CalculateMyNumbers(FuncForAddingNumbers);
CalculateMyNumbers multiplyMyNumbers = new CalculateMyNumbers(FuncForMultiplyingNumbers);
CalculateMyNumbers multiCast = (CalculateMyNumbers)Delegate.Combine (addMyNumbers, multiplyMyNumbers);

52) What is the difference between CType and Directcast in C#?

  • CType is used for conversion between type and the expression.
  • Directcast is used for converting the object type which requires run time type to be the same as specified type.

myHashtbl.Add("2", "TestValue2");

56) How to check whether hash table contains specific key in C#?

Method – “ContainsKey” can be used to check the key in hash table. Below is the sample code for the same –

Eg: myHashtbl.ContainsKey("1");

57) What is enum in C#?

enum keyword is used for declaring an enumeration, which consists of named constants and it is called as enumerator lists. Enums are value types in C# and these can’t be inherited. Below is the sample code of using Enums

Eg: enum Fruits { Apple, Orange, Banana, WaterMelon};
