    - Mutual exclusion problem occurs when the processes not sharing the same resource.

    - It is a program object that prevents parallel access to a shared resource.

    - Mutual exclusion is used in concurrent programming with a critical section, in which the processes or threads access shared resource.

    - It refers to the requirement of ensuring that no two concurrent processes are in their critical section at same time. It is a basic requirement in concurrent control to prevent race conditions.
