Homework

Have a read through the following article on primitives: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/nutsandbolts/datatypes.html.

This is an Oracle publication that will give you a very thorough explanation on the ins and outs of the primitive types in Java. I must say that personally, I don't find it hugely useful to memorize all of these details, but I know there are people who do like to know, so this is for all the true geeks out there ;)
