LIFO - Last In First Out - in a stack you stack things on top of each other. The last thing that you stacked on is the first thing that you can take off. LIFO.

When you stack up objects say plates, first plate which goes at the bottom of the stack can only be removed last.

FILO ( First In Last Out)

LIFO is the right answer, Practically we see STACK is keeping number of CDs on each other in that scenario the last CD we kept in a box will be out first but in queue the person who is first in a queue where choclate is being distributed will get the choclate first so STACK is on LIFO and QUEUE is on FIFO

LIFO. Last in first out. Stack has two operations in one place that is push and pop.
Push means it inserts the value or data one bye one.
Pop means it removes the data one by one
