There are different data types exist for the variable like Byte, Int32, Float, String, etc. To get the variable type, we need to use the GetType() method.

Example

$x = 10 
$x.GetType()

IsPublic IsSerial Name    BaseType
-------- -------- ----    --------

To get only the variable datatype use Name property.

$x.GetType().Name
