ANSWER

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language.  It is the predominant markup language used on web today for the creation of web pages.  The term markup language is used to describe annotations that are added to any document that are distinguishable from the original text of the document.  In the case of HTML, these annotations are distinguishable by the use of angle brackets “<” “>” to create HTML tags.

HTML tags are used to annotate a document, such as a webpage, in order to define its structure.  HTML tags define various types of webpage content in terms of headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, data, quotes, and more.

HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are almost always used hand in hand.  While HTML defines the structure of a document, CSSs define the presentation of a document.  Using the HTML <style> tag, a predefined style from a CSS can be referenced to format the content of the HTML document as desired.  Using HTML and CSS together allows for the decoupling of the structure and presentation of a document.  One of the benefits of this is that the presentation of a document can be changed at any time without modifying the HTML document itself.

Above already told about a lot about HTML, but Still, I want to give my own answer about what is HTML? It is an abbreviation of HyperText Markup Languages for creating web pages.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
