The range() method of the OffsetDateTime class used to get the ValueRange object which is the range of field in terms of the minimum and maximum values for the field passed as a parameter to this method. The method returns ValueRange object only for those fields which are supported by OffsetDateTime object. So when the field is not supported by this method then an exception is thrown by this method.
public ValueRange range(TemporalField field)
Parameters: This method accepts one parameter field which is the field to query the range.
Return value: This method returns the range of valid values for the field.
