C# is a new/modern language compared to C++ and is much more propgrammer friendly
1. automatic memory management removes headachess of allocation/deallocation of memory and memory leaks.
2.Reflection : not sure if this is is possible in C++ atleast not as easily as in C#
3.Threading and asynchrnous calls are easy.
but obviously C++ is powerful, accessing raw memory gives you complete control over performance and other issues as long as well coded.
1. c# = c# is a purely object orient language.
1.c++ = c++ is a procedural language and object oriented language.not purely object oriented language.
2.c# = c# doesn't support multiple inheritance.
2.c++ = c++ support multiple inheritance.

in C++ multiple inheritance can be implemented where as in c# we cant but by using interfaces
C++ is regarded as a mid-level language. This indicates that C++ comprises a combination of both high-level and low-level language features. C# is designed specifically to work with the .Net and is geared to the modern environment of Windows and mouse-controlled user interface, networks and the internet.
C++ was designed and implemented by Bjarne Stroustrup, as Mahesh said. He joined the Computer Science Research Center of Bell Telephone Laboratories in New Jersey in 1979. Bell laboratories is where Unix and the C language was developed. Bjarne Stroustrup's homepage is at: http://www.stroustrup.com.

I am seeing this question being searched a lot. So, let me start
saying this – These are two different programming languages to write software.
While C++ is an older language, C# is fairly new. C++ was created
by Bjarne Stroustrup, a Danish and British trained computer scientist in 1979. Lean

C# is more modern programming language created by Microsoft in
1999 and later was adopted as the primary language for the .NET Framework. Here
