2. C

C was originally developed at Bell Labs and used for re-implementation of Unix operating system. C language provide low level access to system memory and other resources and used in writing applications requiring memory and i/io operations and applications which were written in assembly language. Most of the modern programming languages borrows syntax and other features from C language.

3. C++

Released in a 1983 as superset of c language C++ provides object oriented Programming capabilities and used in creating mid tier services in three-tier architecture, driving space probes, ecommerce & web application, telecom services, devices, games, device driver development and processing engines for audio, images etc.
