Private shared function

1) Public shared function and Private Shared function

When you declare a function as shared then you don't have to make an instance of the class to use the function. for ex.

there is a class c1 and it has a shared function F1 then you can use this function without making an instance of it.

2)Public protected function & Private protected function

There is nothing called as Public protected or Private Protected. There  are 5 access modifiers which you can use in .net.For further details goto this link

3)  Friends

The  friend functions are also illustrated in the above link. just remeber that Friend functions are called Internal in c#.

4)  enumeration.

hey are generally written to make your code more readable. ou can find more information on Enumerations in the follwing 2 links
