public class GFG {

    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:
