Best Answer

The processor can basically understand instructions only in binary format. However for the programmer it would be difficult to write the complete source code in binary( 0 and 1) format and also it is more susceptible to error.

To solve this problem of the programming world, certain languages were introduced that could be written in English like language for the ease of developer and later with the use of compiler it could be converted into machine level language(binary format). These kind of languages are called as high level languages.

example: Java, C# etc
