More codes for the above method are as follows:
Example 2: Here as we know the date of the month, lies between 1 to 31 but if we suppose to set the date as 33, it will set date 2 for the next month because, and this date 2 becomes the date for the next of the previous month. In the below output, 2 is the date of November month and 10 is the month of November because the month name starts from 0 to 11 i.e, 0 for January and 11 for December.
Example 3: If in the Date() constructor we do not give any date of the month, still setDate() method set a new date which is given as its parameter.
Example 4: If nothing as a parameter is given in the Date() constructor, still the setDate() method sets the date but the month becomes the current month.
