A multi processing os supports multiple processes to run with the help of some scheduling alogorithm(round robin) its mean u can run multiple process at same time, there are two type of multi processing os 1) multiprocessing :- single Processor and multiple process2) symmetric multiprocessing :- multiple Processor and single processso a multiprogramming OS supports all features like 1) Multi tasking 2) Multi processing3} Multi threading( thread can also be considerd as a task)but if any of these feature is not supported by the os then that os cant be multiprogramming os
