BASIC HELP

Can anyone please tell me what is the difference between the properties of INT_MAX and LONG_MAX .
In this code Solution: 50526884 | CodeChef if i use INT_MAX it gives wrong answer , but on LONG_MAX it gives correct . What i know is both have same value then why such behaviour ?

#include <iostream>
#include <climits>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    cout << "INT_MAX:" << INT_MAX << endl;
    cout << "LONG_MAX:" << LONG_MAX << endl;
}

Edit:

They might be the same on a 32-bit OS, though (like my Raspbian install).
