Numeric Types (int 32, short, single).

Structures (Custom data types based on System.ValueType).

Enumerations(Custom types that represent a defined set of Values).

Boolean, char can be accessed directly.

Yes, C# is an OO language in the tradition of Java and C++.

Question: 5

What is the difference between const and static readonly?

The difference is that static read only can be modified by the containing class, but const can never be modified and must e initialized to a compile time constant.


To expand on the static read only case a bit, the containing class can only modify it:

in the variable declaration ( through a variable initialize)

in the static constructor (instance constructor if it’s not static)
