    There are four different Coffman's conditions that lead to a deadlock, and they are:-
    1. Mutual Exclusion: In this scenario, only one process may use a critical resource at a time..
    2. Hold & Wait: In this case one process is allocated with some resources while waiting for others.
    3. No Pre-emption: No resource can be forcible removed from a process holding it.
    4. Circular Wait: A closed chain of processes exist such that each process holds at least one resource needed by another process in the chain.
