- Identifier name can start with both upper-case as well as lower case letter but can’t start with numbers.

Comments: Comments are a way to improve the readability of a program. While coding we use comments for a better understanding of code for other users. While execution of the code, compiler ignore the comments and compile the rest of the code. There are two ways to use comments :
- Single-line comments ( // )
- Multi-line comments (/* */)
