Sections

Sections are the logical subparts or subdivision of the program logic. It is the collection of paragraphs.

Paragraphs

Paragraphs are the portions of various selections. These selections are a user-defined or predefined names which are followed by a period. This section includes zero or more sentences.

Sentences

Sentences are a combination of single or multiple statements. They occur only in the procedure division. A sentence in COBOL language must end with a period(.) according to the syntax.

Statements

Characters

Characters cannot be divided further as these are lowest entity in the hierarchy.
