Q.11Explain the Difference between SDI and MDI ?
Single document interface supports single document in its window i.e as we open another document the previously opened document I closed and the new document is loaded in its window. As a example of SDI we can consider NOTEPAD, in which only one document can be opened at a time.
Multiple document interfaces, on the other hand, allows us to display multiple documents in a single window at a time. For example MS-Word, MS-Excel etc are examples of MDI application.

Q.12 Differentiate between Hiding and Unloading of form.
Hiding – When a form is hidden, it remains in main memory. When brought back on screen, by the show method, the form is restored to the state it was in, when Hide method was called.
Unloading – When unloaded, the form is removed from the main memory. When show method is called on an Unloaded form it is reloaded into the main memory first and its state is set according to the property values set at design time.
