- Long: long is used to increase 2 more bytes from default one .this can be applied to int and double data types .
- signed: signed is used to intake both negative and positive values
- Unsigned: this accepts only positive values, this keyword is helpful in programmes like “number of days in the year” the answer is 365 but it will not accept -365
