Why operating systems evolved from multiprogrammed batch systems to time sharing systems?

Simple batch system used to for long times and they occupy the CPU even when they are actually not utilizing the CPU for example while doing the I/O operations. So the programmers thought it to be great idea if some other process can use the CPU when the previous process is idle. In multiprogrammed batch systems one user can run multiple programs and which gets the CPU whenever the CPU is idle. So it speeds up the process completion.

Is single user Operating system is a single tasking operating system?

The two concepts build upon each other. A single tasking (ST) operating system is necessarily a single user (SU) operating system, but a single user operating system may be a multi-tasking (MT) operating system. For example, MS-DOS is a SU, ST operating system (there was only one "user" and only one program could run at a time), Microsoft Windows 3.1 was a SU, MT operating system (only one user could be logged in at a time, but multiple tasks could run at once), and Windows XP is a multiple user (MU), MT system, as multiple users could be logged in at once, and multiple tasks could be run at once. There is no known example of a MU, ST operating system.

What is the relationship between a guest operating system and a host operating system in a system like VMware what factors need to be considered in choosing the host operating system?

A host operating system is the operating system that is in direct communication with the hardware. It has direct hardware access to kernel mode and all of the devices on the physical machine. The guest operating system runs on top of a virtualization layer and all of the physical devices are virtualized. A host operating system should be as modular and thin as possible to allow the virtualization of the hardware to be as close to the physical hardware as possible, and so that dependencies that exist in the host operating don't restrict operation in the guest operating system.
