Sata type is nothing but a way to declare any  variable of that kind.  It can be explain by a statement.  Eg: Int x;        float y;        char z;  Here x is a variable of type int (integer).where x assign a value which is of integer type.i.e x=5 & not x=5.012. Because x is of integer type . This value is assign by variable y.  Here y=5.012 is possible as y is of floating point number .  Similarly,      z='a' or z="my self" can be a type of character which stores single caracter or  many characters in ("-")format syntactically.
