please reply...

Sandbox is a copy of your production instance that can be used for testing and other purposes without compromising data and apps in the production org.

You can create multiple copies of Sandbox for your production env.

There are three types of sandboxes:
Configuration Only: Configuration-only sandboxes copy all of your production organization's reports, dashboards, price books, products, apps, and customizations under Your Name | Setup, but exclude all of your organization's standard and custom object records, documents, and attachments. Creating a configuration-only sandbox can decrease the time it takes to create or refresh a sandbox from several hours to just a few minutes, but it can only include up to 500 MB of data. You can refresh a configuration-only sandbox once per day.
Developer Sandbox: Developer Sandboxes are special configuration-only sandboxes intended for coding and testing by a single developer. They provide an environment in which changes under active development can be isolated until they are ready to be shared. Just like configuration-only sandboxes, Developer Sandboxes copy all application and configuration information to the sandbox. Developer Sandboxes are limited to 10 MB of test or sample data, which is enough for many development and testing tasks. You can refresh a developer sandbox once per day.
Full: Full sandboxes copy your entire production organization and all of its data, including standard and custom object records, documents, and attachments. You can refresh a full-copy sandbox every 29 days.
