PHPUnit assertLessThan() Function
The assertLessThan() function is a builtin function in PHPUnit and is used to assert whether the actually obtained value is less than the expected value or not. This assertion will return true in the case if the actual value is less than the expected value else returns false. In case of true the asserted test case got passed else test case got failed.
