Java




// Java program to illustrate
// getModifiers () method
 
import java.lang.reflect.Field;
import java.lang.reflect.Modifier;
 
public class GFG {
 
    // initialize field
    private static int number;
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws NoSuchFieldException
    {
        // get Field object
        Field field
            = GFG.class
                  .getDeclaredField("number");
 
        // apply getModifiers() method
        int modifiers
            = field.getModifiers();
 
        // print the results
        System.out.println(
            Modifier
                .toString(modifiers));
    }
}

Output:
