What is the difference between a short and a byte datatype?What can be the range of numbers that i can include in short and byte?

Is it like short can be from -100 to 100?
Request help.

Byte is 8 bit signed data type and short is 16 bit signed data type. Thus for byte, the range is -128 to 127. Please calculate the range of short yourself.
