More codes for the above method are as follows:



Example 1: Here the date of the month must lie in between 1 to 31 because no date has month greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because the date for the month does not exist, minutes will not exist when date of the month is given as 33 i.e, greater than 31.
