C++ also an extension of C, is an object oriented programming (OOP) language, developed by Bjarne Stroustrup. Therefore making it possible to code C++ in "C style" or "object-oriented style." C++ comes with an advantage of being coded in either way in certain scenarios, and is thus an effective example of a hybrid language.
While C is considered as a low level language, C++ is considered to be an intermediate level language, as it encapsulates both high and low level language features. Initially, the language was called 'C with classes’ as it had all properties of C language with an additional concept of 'classes’. However, it was renamed to C++ in 1983. It is pronounced "C-Plus-Plus."
