A task is a like a unix process that has its share on CPU but the progarm is just a dump process on your back up devices it is not having share of your CPU. Just Dumped not running, but as soon as it will be executed it may become a task.

First of all there is difference between program and a task. There may be multiple tasks running related to one program at the same time. so if the processor is busy in multiple tasks related to one program then it is multitasking. But if the multiple tasks which the processor is executing concurrently are related to different independent programs then the concept is know as multiprogramming.
