When a PL is case sensitive, the number of possible keywords/ variable names permissible is increased.

Also - more important reason - program readability is improved - we use caps for macros, have different naming conventions based on case sensitivity and so on.

Yes th programming language is case sensitive because of its sensitivity that means the language itself having some built in keywords that are used to define variables and data types also vary accordingly.

The main reason is the output format and the case insensitivity if any may lead to discrepancies and result in the form of garbage values or an compile time error.
