1.How did the concept of "sharp" and "flat" arise?
2.Why don't we have 12 distinct notes like A to L instead of A to G with 5 sharps and flats in between them?
3.Why flat is needed in addition to sharps?

Thanks and regards,

Hi Ayan, I can say that this is a long story!

Check out this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_temperament

You'd also find helpful this:

and about why we have both sharp and flat, check out this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accidental_(music)

Let me know if it clarifies everything.
