                                        2
     (a) Write 2 differences between an option button and a check box.       2
     (b) Make the textbox txtbill invisible on form load and provide an      1
         access key Alt C to the command button “Calculate Bill “

     (c) When the command button next customer is clicked, all the text      2
         boxes should be cleared and option buttons should be deselected
         and check box unchecked.

     (d) Write code for click event of cmdBill to calculate total Bill as    2
         per the rules below.
                       Item                  Unit Price (Rs)
                       Chapathi              10

                       Green Peas Masala     25
                       Tomato Fry            20


         Cost of each food item is the product of the unit price of that
         item and the quantity ordered.The Bill is the total cost of all
         the food items.Additionally a discount is offered on the Bill
         according to the following criteria.
                                                                             2
                      Customer status       Discount
                                              (percentage of bill)
                      Lifetime member       20%
                      Member on probation   10%
                      Non Vegetarian        0


         If the customer is generous to provide a tip, an additional 20 Rs   1
         is added to this amount.

         Total Bill is Bill – discount + tip

      Command       CmdBill                                To calculate the bill
      Button

                                            2
    (a)    On form load event clear all the textboxes, option           2
           buttons, check boxes and make the text boxes txtcost and
           txtbill invisible. Also provide an access key Alt B to the
           command button cmdbill.

    (b)    Identify the event and write an event procedure such that    2
           when the user clicks on the option button the rate per
           ticket should be displayed in the text box txtcost

    (c)    Write the code for the click of the command button
           cmdbill. The rates for each area is given as
            Area     Cost of
                     Ticket
            BOX      45
            Stall    30
            Reserve 25

           If the number of seats is more than 20 the group gets a
           15% discount on the total bill. The chkbulk should be        4
           checked in that case. Label4 should display “You get a 15%
           discount”

           If the user selects the morning show give him a 5%
           discount.
           Total bill=cost per ticket * number of seats. Display the
           Rate and the total bill in their respective text boxes and
           also make them visible.

    (d)    Check if the number of tickets entered by the user is a      2
           numeric value. Also a user can book only less than 75
           tickets at a time as the capacity of the hall(per seating
           arrangement) is only 75 tickets
