      Console.WriteLine("The value of first stock category = {0}",Enum.GetName(typeof(Stock), 0));
      Console.WriteLine("The value of second stock category = {0}",Enum.GetName(typeof(Stock), 1));
      Console.WriteLine("The value of third stock category = {0}",Enum.GetName(typeof(Stock), 2));
      Console.WriteLine("All the categories of stocks...");
      foreach(string s in Enum.GetNames(typeof(Stock))) {
