Now let us understand the implementation of the PyTypeObject for the PyIntObject. It is located in the file Objects/intobject.c on line number 1407. I will paste it here for reference.

static PyNumberMethods int_as_number = {
(binaryfunc)int_add, /*nb_add*/
(binaryfunc)int_sub, /*nb_subtract*/
(binaryfunc)int_mul, /*nb_multiply*/
(binaryfunc)int_classic_div, /*nb_divide*/
(binaryfunc)int_mod, /*nb_remainder*/
(binaryfunc)int_divmod, /*nb_divmod*/
(ternaryfunc)int_pow, /*nb_power*/
(unaryfunc)int_neg, /*nb_negative*/
(unaryfunc)int_int, /*nb_positive*/
(unaryfunc)int_abs, /*nb_absolute*/
(inquiry)int_nonzero, /*nb_nonzero*/
(unaryfunc)int_invert, /*nb_invert*/
(binaryfunc)int_lshift, /*nb_lshift*/
(binaryfunc)int_rshift, /*nb_rshift*/
(binaryfunc)int_and, /*nb_and*/
(binaryfunc)int_xor, /*nb_xor*/
(binaryfunc)int_or, /*nb_or*/
int_coerce, /*nb_coerce*/
(unaryfunc)int_int, /*nb_int*/
(unaryfunc)int_long, /*nb_long*/
(unaryfunc)int_float, /*nb_float*/
(unaryfunc)int_oct, /*nb_oct*/
(unaryfunc)int_hex, /*nb_hex*/
0, /*nb_inplace_add*/
0, /*nb_inplace_subtract*/
0, /*nb_inplace_multiply*/
0, /*nb_inplace_divide*/
0, /*nb_inplace_remainder*/
0, /*nb_inplace_power*/
0, /*nb_inplace_lshift*/
0, /*nb_inplace_rshift*/
0, /*nb_inplace_and*/
0, /*nb_inplace_xor*/
0, /*nb_inplace_or*/
(binaryfunc)int_div, /* nb_floor_divide */
(binaryfunc)int_true_divide, /* nb_true_divide */
0, /* nb_inplace_floor_divide */
0, /* nb_inplace_true_divide */
(unaryfunc)int_int, /* nb_index */
};

PyTypeObject PyInt_Type = {
PyVarObject_HEAD_INIT(&PyType_Type, 0)
“int”,
sizeof(PyIntObject),
0,
(destructor)int_dealloc, /* tp_dealloc */
(printfunc)int_print, /* tp_print */
0, /* tp_getattr */
0, /* tp_setattr */
(cmpfunc)int_compare, /* tp_compare */
(reprfunc)int_to_decimal_string, /* tp_repr */
&int_as_number, /* tp_as_number */
0, /* tp_as_sequence */
0, /* tp_as_mapping */
(hashfunc)int_hash, /* tp_hash */
0, /* tp_call */
(reprfunc)int_to_decimal_string, /* tp_str */
PyObject_GenericGetAttr, /* tp_getattro */
0, /* tp_setattro */
0, /* tp_as_buffer */
Py_TPFLAGS_DEFAULT | Py_TPFLAGS_CHECKTYPES |
Py_TPFLAGS_BASETYPE | Py_TPFLAGS_INT_SUBCLASS, /* tp_flags */
int_doc, /* tp_doc */
0, /* tp_traverse */
0, /* tp_clear */
0, /* tp_richcompare */
0, /* tp_weaklistoffset */
0, /* tp_iter */
0, /* tp_iternext */
int_methods, /* tp_methods */
0, /* tp_members */
int_getset, /* tp_getset */
0, /* tp_base */
0, /* tp_dict */
0, /* tp_descr_get */
0, /* tp_descr_set */
0, /* tp_dictoffset */
0, /* tp_init */
0, /* tp_alloc */
int_new, /* tp_new */
};

I would urge you to look into each of these methods in detail for better understanding.
