There are Request Objects, Response Objects, Scripting Objects, etc.  There are too many to answer here.

I'll give you a little bit of a run down:

Request Object - one of the central objects in the ASP object model.  It is vital for controlling how the user sends information to the server.  The Request Object can be used to obtain information about what the user wants and be manipulated within ASP.

Response Object - Used to send the server's output to the client.  It's basically the counterpart to the Request Object.  It sends or resends information gathered by the Request Object to the client by writing to the HTTP data stream.

Application Object - Stores variables and objects for application-scope usage.  Collections are Contents and StaticObjects.  Methods are Lock and Unlock.  Events are OnStart and OnEnd.

Session Object - Keeps track of an individual browser as it navigates through the web site.

Server Object - Creates components.  Methods such as CreateObject, MapPath, URLEncode, HTMLEncode etc.

FileSystemObject - accesses the file system of ther web server to manipulate files, folders and directory paths as well as general information.

TextStreamObject - allows access of the contents of a file such as a text file.

There are many more.  Lots of the objects have objects of their own.

For more detail I think you're going to have to offer more than 10 points.

Use this link.  It's a good place to start.  I also recommend a book titled Beginning Active Server Pages 2.0, which is a Wrox book.  You will get a very fundamental understanding of Active Server Page development.  

Keep the 20 points.  No offense, but it's really not worth all the typing involved for that amount of points.  The answer I gave you above is enough to help you start.

Another good book is Professional ADO RDS Programming With ASP, another Wrox book.  Both books can be found on

Good luck
