Now see the differences:
In C#2.0 we were doing like this:
Student objStudent = new Student();
objStudent.Name = "Chevrolet Corvette"; = "45345345"; "New Delhi";

But in C# 3.0 we can use the same thing like this:
Student objStudent = new Student { Name = "Jhon", phone = "4543432", city = "New Delhi" };
