# Ruby | Time subsec() function

Time#subsec() is a Time class method which returns the fraction for time as a rational number.

Syntax: Time.subsec()

Parameter: Time values

Return: the fraction for time as a rational number.

Example #1 :

 `# Ruby code for Time.subsec() method ` ` `  `# loading library ` `require ``'time'` ` `  `# declaring time  ` `a = ``Time``.``new``(``2019``) ` ` `  `# declaring time ` `b = ``Time``.``new``(``2019``, ``10``) ` ` `  `# declaring time ` `c = ``Time``.``new``(``2019``, ``12``, ``31``) ` ` `  `# Time  ` `puts ``"Time a : #{a}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time b : #{b}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time c : #{c}\n\n\n\n"` ` `  ` `  `# subsec form  ` `puts ``"Time a subsec form : #{a.subsec}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time b subsec form : #{b.subsec}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time c subsec form : #{c.subsec}\n\n"`

Output :

```Time a : 2019-01-01 00:00:00 +0000

Time b : 2019-10-01 00:00:00 +0000

Time c : 2019-12-31 00:00:00 +0000

Time a subsec form : 0

Time b subsec form : 0

Time c subsec form : 0

```

Example #2 :

 `# Ruby code for Time.subsec() method ` ` `  `# loading library ` `require ``'time'` ` `  `# declaring time  ` `a = ``Time``.now ` ` `  `# declaring time ` `b = ``Time``.``new``(``1000``, ``10``, ``10``) ` ` `  `# declaring time ` `c = ``Time``.``new``(``2020``, ``12``) ` ` `  `# Time  ` `puts ``"Time a : #{a}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time b : #{b}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time c : #{c}\n\n\n\n"` ` `  ` `  `# subsec form  ` `puts ``"Time a subsec form : #{a.subsec}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time b subsec form : #{b.subsec}\n\n"` `puts ``"Time c subsec form : #{c.subsec}\n\n"`

Output :

```Time a : 2019-08-27 12:08:40 +0000

Time b : 1000-10-10 00:00:00 +0000

Time c : 2020-12-01 00:00:00 +0000

Time a subsec form : 16172931/1000000000

Time b subsec form : 0

Time c subsec form : 0
