    (Original post by Danny Dorito)

    Here is my re-arrangement of the question;

    A policy must be created that explains the use of variables when writing programs, as well as the use of local and global variables alongside variable naming rules and conventions. Discuss the content and explain why it is required.

    Firstly, read the questions to yourself multiple times and understand what it is asking you.
    Secondly, highlight the key points within the question, like I have done above.
    Thirdly, using your knowledge, answer the question as best as you can.

    What are the use of variables when writing a program?
    What are variables? Why would they be used when writing programs? It's like asking why a chef uses a chopping board, although he has knives.

    What are the use of local and global variables?
    What are local and global variables? Why would they be used?

    What is the use of variable naming rules and conventions?
    Naming variables appropriately allow for the production of understandable and maintainable code. Why else? What is the point of naming variables?
