Types of storage class
It is the area or location, where we can use or access the variable. A variable can not be accessed outside its scope.
It is the time up to which a variable is alive. Basically it is lifetime, between the creation of a variable and destruction of that variable.
It specifies the place in the memory where the variable is to be stored. Simply it shows location (not specific address but place) where the variable of written storage class is stored.
It shows that which default value is given to a variable when no value is given. It is different for each variable type, here type means storage class of it.
