I think c++ is a upgraded version of c# i mean c++ has more built in functions and it has better perfomance that c#, i am not a expert in programming languages so i can not explain you in a better way. A part from c# & C++, we have other progamming languages like JAVA which give accurate outputs.

C# was invented after C++ . C# is best for designing graphical interface and also, it is great for developing web services application. C# is very similar to C++ and it contains many more libraries than that in C++

It all started from C. C is called the mother of all programming languages. From C, a new modification was introduced, which came with the revolutionary Object Oriented model. It was called "C with Classes" and later on renamed as "C++". C and C++ are the languages being used for system programming. Windows 2000 has been built out of C++. C# is a very new language which comes with Microsoft's Dot Net (.NET). C# is considered a true Object oriented language and covers most of the pitfalls of C++. Its syntax is very similar to that of C++ and Java. C# is generally being used these days for user interface programming.

From what I know C++ is a simplified version of C while C sharp inherits more of the java language. Mainly use for web apps in Visual C#
