## AMCAT Data Types Questions 2019 -Computer Programming Section

AMCAT exam consists of Quantitative and Reasoning ability and English as mandatory sections of the test. For IT jobs, Computer Programming section also needs to be attended.
Under Computer Programming, questions are asked from basic programming concepts that includes Data Types. Below we will find out more about AMCAT Data Types Questions.

### Overview of Data Types

As the name says Data Types is a classification of data, to ease the process of compiling. It indicates the program that how the user wants to use a particular data within the scope of the program. Basically, data types are classified into primitive or in built data types and user defined data types.

### Most Employability Test 2019

Primitive Data Type includes-

• Character as char, range(-128 to 127)
• Number as int, range(-32,768 to 32,767)
• Small number as short, range(-32,768 to 32,767)
• Long number as long, range(-2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647)
• Decimal number as float, range(1.2e^-38 to 3.4e^38 upto 6 decimal places)

User defined data types are complex and defined using the in built data types. String is a combination of characters. For example, ‘a’ is a character and ‘name’ is a string.

Note:- Char is 2 bytes,int is of 2 bytes, short is of 2 bytes, long is of 4 bytes and float is of 4 bytes.
