    A data structure is a way of organizing data that considers not only the items stored, but also their relationship to each other. Advance knowledge about the relationship between data items allows designing of efficient algorithms for the manipulation of data.

    A data structure is an way of organizing data in a computer's memory or even disk storage. An example of several common data structures are arrays, linked lists, queues, stacks, binary trees, and hash tables.

    Data Structure means arrangement of homogeneous data either in Mathematical or in Logical Manner. When you arrange it in Mathematical manner, then it is linear Data Structure and when you arrange in Logical Manner, then it is non-linear Data Structure.

    In computer science, a data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.
    Different kinds of data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific tasks. For example, B-trees are particularly well-suited for implementation of databases, while compiler implementations usually use hash tables to look up identifiers.

    Data Structure nothing about putting different DATA TYPE into single unit or unique and used in efficient way.
    Every Data should be stored and linked with other Data without too much transfer of memory.
