Below programs illustrate the minusSeconds() method:
Program 1: 
 



Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// Instant.minusSeconds() method
 
import java.time.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create a Instant object
        Instant instant
            = Instant.parse("2018-10-30T09:05:55.13Z");
 
        // current Instant
        System.out.println("Initialize instant: "
                           + instant);
 
        // subtract 4300 seconds from this instant
        Instant returnedValue
            = instant.minusSeconds(4300);
 
        // print result
        System.out.println("Returned Instant: "
                           + returnedValue);
    }
}
Output
Initialize instant: 2018-10-30T09:05:55.130Z
Returned Instant: 2018-10-30T07:54:15.130Z

Program 2: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// Instant.minusSeconds() method
 
import java.time.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create a Instant object
        Instant instant = Instant.now();
 
        // current Instant
        System.out.println("Current instant: "
                           + instant);
 
        // subtract 54000 from this instant
        Instant returnedValue
            = instant.minusSeconds(54000);
 
        // print result
        System.out.println("Returned Instant: "
                           + returnedValue);
    }
}
Output: 
Current instant: 2018-11-27T06:44:04.901Z
Returned Instant: 2018-11-26T15:44:04.901Z
