var keyword in C#

Keywords are the words in a language that are used for some internal process or represent some predefined actions. var is a keyword, it is used to declare an implicit type variable, that specifies the type of a variable based on initial value.

Syntax:

var variable_name = value;

Example:

Input: a = 637
       b = -9721087085262

Output: value of a 637, type System.Int32
        value of b -9721087085262, type System.Int64

Input: c = 120.23f
       d = 150.23m
       e = G
       f = Geeks
Output: value of c 120.23, type System.Single
        value of d 150.23, type System.Decimal
        value of e G, type System.Char
        value of f Geeks, type System.String
