    Syntax: 
     
public int hashCode(arg)
Parameters:
arg - the argument whose hashCode value we need
Returns:
hashCode value of arg
  1.  
  2. lowestOneBit() : java.lang.Integer.lowestOneBit() method first convert int to Binary, then it looks for set(1) bit present at lowest position then it reset rest of the bits 
    e.g arg = 36 
    It,s Binary Representation = 0010 0100 
    It considers lowest bit(at 3) and now reset rest of the bits i.e. 0000 0100 
    so result = 0100 i.e. 4 
    Syntax: 
     
public static int lowestOneBit(int arg)
Parameters:
arg - argument passed
Returns:
integer value by only considering lowest 1 bit in the argument.
  1.  
  2. highestOneBit() : java.lang.Integer.highestOneBit() method first convert int to Binary, then it looks for set(1) bit present at lowest position then it reset rest of the bits 
    e.g arg = 36 
    It,s Binary Representation = 0010 0100 
    It considers highest bit(at 6) and now reset rest of the bits i.e. 0001 0000 
    so result = 10000 i.e. 32
