Data type can be regarded as data structure because we can

define our own data type by using typed function. Data types are

the category in which the variable are listed to hold the specific

value and data structures are the way in which the values and

variables are stored in the memory. The use of a data type called

structures allows a collection of values possibly of different

types to be treated as a single item. Each data structure is built

up from the basic data types of the underlying programming language

using the available data structuring facilities, such as

arrays & pointers
