I READ ONE QUESTION IN MAINFRAME FAQS THAT IS

HOW MANY DIVISIONS ARE THERE IN COBOL-JCL?

ANSWER IS SIX.

BUT I KNOW ONLY FOUR i.e 1.ID DIVISION
2.ENVIRONMENT DIVISION 3.DATA DIVISION 4.PROCEDURE DIVISION.


WHAT ARE THE OTHER TWO DIVSIONS? IS THIS QUESTION IS CORRECT
OR NOT? GIVE ME A CLARIFICATION?

Hi knsrkrajvarma,

As for my knowledge there are four divisions in Cobol. The Data Division contains 6 Sections.

I think the question is wrong.

During the Renaissance the intellectuals of the time sat around trying to compute the number of angels that could fit on the head of a pin.

I include this nonsense ques in the same catagory. What difference does it make?

Now, if the prob was "name all the angels that can fit on the head of a pin and detail the functions each performs" you may spread some knowledge in the world.
