Which is better - well that can't be answered because it depends on the context. You'll have to define which parameters you wish to compare these two programming languages on so that we can draw comparisons and conclusions.

How can we say that a specific programming language is open source or closed source ?

I think its implementation decides whether it's Opensource or opposite.

Yes. That's right. I exactly meant about the licence...
Java it's free and C# we have to pay money , right..?

C# is not, strictly speaking, close to C/C++ because it uses Common Language Runtime (CLR) developed by MS. Hence, it's not open source either.

There is a wiki page for answering just this.
Another good read can be:

You guys can go ahead and read those two pages and thank me later here. ☕

Features present in C#, but not in Java
  • C# includes more primitive types and the functionality to catch arithmetic exceptions.
  • Event handling is a "first class citizen"—it is part of the language itself.
  • Allows the definition of "structs", which are similar to classes but may be allocated on the stack (unlike instances of classes in C# and Java).
  • C# implements properties as part of the language syntax.
  • C# allows switch statements to operate on strings.
  • C# allows anonymous methods providing closure functionality.
  • C# has support for output parameters, aiding in the return of multiple values, a feature shared by C++ and SQL.
  • C# has the ability to alias namespaces.
  • C# provides integration with COM.
  • Following the example of C and C++, C# allows call by reference for primitive and reference types.
Features present in Java, but not in C#
  • Java's strictfp keyword guarantees that the result of floating point operations remain the same across platforms.
  • Java supports checked exceptions for better enforcement of error trapping and handling.
