 Q1. What is "convention over configuration" ? Which framework uses this design paradigm ?Design
Ans. Convention over configuration is a way of software design used by frameworks that attempt to decrease the number of decisions that a developer is required to make without necessarily losing flexibility. The objective is to reduce the unnecessary configurations and follow conventions to accomplish that. For example - DB Entity and DB Table name conventionally should be same and hence shouldn't require configuring mapping between the two.

"Spring Boot" and "Ruby on Rails" have adopted this design principle.
