Difference between Value Type and Reference Type
Conceptually, the difference is that a value type stores its value directly, whereas a reference type stores a reference to the value.
These types are stored in different places in memory; value types are stored in an area known as the stack, and reference types are stored in an area know as managed heap.
Predefined Value Types:
Interger Types: C# supports eight predefined integer types: sbyte, short, int, long, byte, ushort, uint, and ulong.
Floating-Point Types: float, doble
The Decimal Type: decimal
The Boolean Type: bool
The Character Type: char
Predefined Reference Types:
C# supports two predefined reference types, object and string.
