Could any one explain what is meant by tight coupling? Loose coupling?.

I was Googling on this a few days ago. I found this page quite helpful:

Coupling between modules/components is their degree of mutual interdependence; lower coupling is better.

* size: number of connections between routines
* intimacy: the directness of the connection between routines
* visibility: the prominence of the connection between routines
* flexibility: the ease of changing the connections between routines
