vijay ii is true
@vijay can u explain what is difference b/w "grammar symbols" [option 2] and "non terminals" [option 4] ?
@ Gate mission 1        Grammar symbol means both "terminal" and "non-terminal" symbol.
Option 1 is also correct for CSL. right?
@ jason no, Option 1 is not ryt u can have "epsilon" on right hand side of production

In CSL   A -> B  where A belongs to (terminal +non-terminal)and B belongs to (terminal + non-terminal)

and lengthof(A) <=lenghtof(B) (always)

but incase B='epsilon' i dont know whether this condition holds true or not

so answer might be "option 4" possible but i am not sure correct me if i am wrong.

S->epsilon is nt a valid production in CSG...though epsilon belongs to CSL...
ε is nt a grammar symbol ?
@Saurabh. S->epsilon can't be the production in CSG and the reason lies with simplication of CFG rules where we eliminate epsilon productions.
but my doubt is nt that....
ε is nt a grammar symbol r nt ?
Yes, epsilon isnt a grammar symbol
Can someone give general production rules for all Grammers ? Like the one given for CSL above ?
