This is one of the questions given to us an assignment and I've tried to search for this on the internet but didn't get the required answers. Would be great if examples are provided too :)

You might want to begin your search with domain specific languages:

A domain-specific language (DSL) is a type of programming language or specification language in software development and domain engineering dedicated to a particular problem domain, a particular problem representation technique, and/or a particular solution technique.

I've never heard of a problem-oriented programming language, but a DSL sounds similar to what I imagine a problem-oriented programming language might be.

Yes, they do seem to be similar. Thanks Mark! – i08in Apr 26 '13 at 3:52
