    Hello, you could fill pages trying to explain this.  Best option for you is to read the following:

    http://computer.howstuffworks.com/cloud-computing/cloud-computing.htm

    What it boils down to is that with cloud computing anything like software/apps you need to accomplish something are already in the cloud for you to use,  you only need a browser to use it.  You do not need to install any software/applications in your computer view/use it.  

    For example, chances are you already have done some cloud computing if you have accessed any webmail account such as yahoo, msn, gmail, etc.

    Preeti,

    Please see the MakeUseOf article, How Does Cloud Computing Work? [Technology Explained] and HowStuffWorks - Cloud Computing. Explaining how cloud computing works can get in-depth, these two articles should sum up the majority of your questions. However, if you have any remaining questions, please feel free to ask!
