What is virtual memory?..

Answer / chinavenkannababu

Virtual memory is a computer system technique which gives
an application program the impression that it has
contiguous working memory, while in fact it is physically
fragmented and may even overflow on to disk storage.
Systems which use this technique make programming of large
applications easier and use real physical memory (e.g. RAM)
more efficiently than those without virtual memory
