 Q1. How would you process a 20 gb file with an application only having access to 4gb memory ?BigData
Ans. Load the file in chunks and then process. If we need to do analytic, we can process analytic information for those chunks and then reprocess the processed information from each chunk.

For example - we need to average all marks in the file. We can divide the file and load into 5 chunks and calculate average for each chunk. Then we can collect averages for all 5 chunks and then calculate the final average.
