The date.getUTCHours() method is used to fetch the hours according to universal time from a given Date object (returns a value ranging from 0 to 23 ).
Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch hours according to universal time.
Return Values: It returns the hours for the given date object according to universal time. Hours is an integer value ranging from 0 to 23.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using the Date() constructor from which we want to fetch hours according to universal time.
Example 1: Below is an example of the Date.getUTCHours() method.
Example 2: The date of the month should lie between 1 to 31 because none of the months have a date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because the date for the month does not exist. Hours will not be existed according to universal time if the date of the month does not exist.
Example 3: If hours are not given while creating a Date object, the getUTCHours() method returns zero (0) but the output is printed as 13 because according to universal time, 0 is represented as 13. It is an exceptional case.
Example 4: If nothing as a parameter is given to the Date() constructor while creating the Date object, the getUTCHours() method returns the current hour according to universal time.
