My applogies.     You may wish to expalin this (briefly) in future questions as  it is our official policy to not assist in cheating and because there are an overwhelming number of questions of that nature.

>> what could be the order of removal for this queue?
Its hard to say.

In most cases, queues are FIFO, which means First In First Out (same as accounting, since you own a business.)  So if you insert A, B, C, in that order, they should come out in the same order.  

However some queues may work differently.  Priority Queues allow items to be assinged a prioroty in some way and the itms are removed in order of their priority.  

Other queues, like the STL queue allow items to be removed in either FIFO or LIFO order as desired (i.e they even allow you to mix the order at times.)

We cannot provide answers to school assignments.  That is grounds for removal from this site.  (for both you and the experts involved.)  We can provide only limitied help in accademic assignments.    We can answer specific (direct) questions, like you might ask your teacher.  We can review your work and post suggestions, again, like your teacher might do.

Do you have specific questions?
Do you have any work on this (incomplete even) that we can review?

First I would like to comment on this by saying this is a not a school assignment. I am 30 years old and am not in school by far! I am trying to teach myself programming in the C language to apply this knowledge to someday write my own programs for the business I own. I am sure I will be posting more questions I come across that troubles me. It may have seemed that the question I posted was looked at like a school assignment and am sorry it was in this way. In the future I will try to phrase the questions better. Thanks and hope you can help me out in the future!

after posting this question an example of priority queue came to mind. Take for example an emergency room at a hospital, more severe cases may get seen before previous cases as they arrive! thanks for your help
