All of us know what a timetable is. It tells us what subject the teachers teach during each period of the day. The timetable lets us see what happens during a particular period of the day.
Similarly, when we go to a movie theatre, we might find movie timings listed out. It is to inform the movie-goers what movie gets screened at what time and on which screen.
We can also call the timetable and the movie timings listed out as a schedule.
A detailed plan of the sequence of events accounted for a particular time frame is a schedule.
A schedule can be of any number of events as long as it is sorted in the order of time.
Let us look at the following example:
