    Output:

    42
    3
    1
    2018
    

    Here 42 is the new minutes, 3 is the current month i.e April, 1 is the current date and 2018 is the current year.

  • Code #3: If value of minute is 66 as given in the parameter of setMinutes() function, It will set 6 as the minute because minute range is form 0 to 59 and (66%60 = 6).

    // Hour from above Date Object is

    var C = dateobj.getHours();
      
    // Printing new minute
    console.log(B);
      
    // Printing hour
    console.log(C);

    Output:

    6
    6
    

    Here 6 is the new minute and hour becomes 06 from 05 because minute range is form 0 to 59 i.e, total 60 and we set new minute as 66 which increase hour by one to 06 from 05 and minute becomes 6.
