Stephen’s Answer

Software is very simple at the most basic level: it is a set of instructions that tells some sort of device exactly what to do. It can range anywhere from an automotive control module unlocking door locks when a button is pushed, to a sophisticated computer program running on a cloud server which allows you to download and store a file to your local computer when you click on a link in a web browser… and anything in between.

Wojciech’s Answer

Some characteristics of software are:
intangibility: software is a non-physical product, universality: software can be used on any device compatible device, modifiability: software can be modified (change its functionality or to fix errors), durability: software does not wear out or deteriorate over time, but it can become outdated, transferability: software can be easily copied, dependability: Software must be reliable, secure, and meet specified requirements to ensure it performs its intended functions, complexity: software can be complex and difficult to understand, especially for non-technical users.
