        int mod = methods[0].getModifiers();
  
        // check Modifier is synchronized or not
        boolean result
            = Modifier.isSynchronized(mod);
  
        System.out.println("Mod integer value "
                           + mod + " is synchronized : "
                           + result);
    }
  
    class GFGTest {
        public synchronized String method1()
        {
            return null;
        }
    }
