Those snap packages AFAIK, you either installed them using the snap command or those came with the default installation. What's a snap package?
Yes.I installed chromium using snap command. But then I uninstalled it.Now when I use 'snap list' it shows command not found. Then why am i seeing these?How canI get rid of them?Will this harm my system?
Seems these are part of the default snapd installation.

Seems like snap forgot to remove the filesystem used for chromium, you can probably either unmount it yourself or reboot the system. Try this:
sudo umount /snap/chromium/1424
Then reboot boot, if it appears again it means you didn't uninstall the snap correctly.
Well I get rid of them with :

sudo umount /snap/core/xxxx
sudo apt purge snapd

Is anything there which unnecessarily hogging memory??

Thank you very much.
If you only have a small amount of memory then it can't hurt to remove snapd, not sure how much memory it takes. If you want a light system you could use the alternative installer and then build your system from there.
