Modifier is a prefix to the basic data type which is used to indicate the modification for storage space allocation to a variable.

Example– In a 32-bit processor, storage space for the int data type is 4.When we use it with modifier the storage space change as follows:

  • Long int: Storage space is 8 bit
  • Short int: Storage space is 2 bit
