This chapter will discuss the Language Integrated Query (Linq) in .NET and explore in detail the extension methods defined in the
Enumerable class that are provided to do the Linq operation using C#. First, you will learn the basics of Linq and then examine the behind-the-scenes operations of each of the extension methods provided in the

In .NET, any data structure that implements
IEnumerable<T> from the
