sounds like a homework question, so I will guide to the "man pages" first:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ybcx56wz.aspx

you will see some examples of C# code, which has functions that return some collection-type stuff.

Hi shah36;

There is no equivalent type in C# as a Collection but you can use the Visual Basic type by doing the following. Add a Reference to the dll Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll and then add the using statement at the top of the code file, using Microsoft.VisualBasic;. The the code gets translated as follows:
Collection abc = new Collection();

public Collection MyFun( string strSqlQuery )
{

}

Open in new window

It is
public Collection MyFun( string strSqlQuery)  
{
     Collection abc = new Collection();
     return abc;
}
