1. Write a program to create a data file for storing student records. Assume a student

record consists of the following fields: ID, Last Name, First Name, and Marks. The

Marks field contains a number between 0 and 100. Write a program that loops to get

data for multiple students from the user and stores those as records in the student.txt

file. The user should enter a negative number as the ID to signal the end of the loop.

Your program should be able to reject non-numeric and out of range marks.

Additionally, handle all file related exceptions.

record structure as exercise (1) and displays the records of only the students having

marks more than 80. Your program should handle all file I/O exceptions.
