What are the layouts in Android?
Layouts are viewgroups, which can contain child views in it.
There are 4 basic layouts in android.
1. linear layout: displays child views in linear fashion (either horizontally or vertically).
2. frame layout: displays child views in stack architecture (one on top of each other). It is also used as place holder for the elements.
3. relative layout: displays child views in relative position to other child views. This is heavily used layout in android.
4. absolute layout: displays child views with absolute position. This is deprecated because of its absolute positioning.
