I am Alka Bajpai, student of MCA. Sir i have read this book and i got a confusion at page no. 278. On the page no. 278 you have defined about coupling and cohesion as "coupling between modules must be minimized" and "cohesion between modules must be maximized. "
How is it possible because both are opposite to one another? According to my opinion cohesion works within a module not between the modules. So if it is possible, please explain me with an example?
