how can i use a string? what should i include to run string like "technogeek"
is it #include <string.h> or what and what is the syntax for string

string.h is for C programs, not C++. The std::string class is declared in <string> header file

#include <string>

using namespace std;

>>what is the syntax for string
Here is a complete list of string functions

We use:

#include <string>

Just remember that the term "string" generally means an ordered sequence of characters.
In an assignment, you could use something like:

sting actor = "Dani";
cout<<actor<<endl;

The above would print out Dani, when executed. Hope this helps.
