Synchronous programming

In contrary to asynchronous programming, synchronous programming allows tasks to be executed sequence-wise. It means each operation should be completed before the next one is started. This type of programming ensures that a program is running as per the predicted order but could lead to inefficiencies if a task such as loading data from a database or retrieving a file is waiting for an external process. The program, in such cases, becomes unresponsive during the wait time. Thus, synchronous programming is more suitable for operations where simple tasks need to be performed in specific order without any kind of interruption.
