Scala short <(x: Int): Boolean

Short, a 16-bit signed integer (equivalent to Java’s short primitive type) is a subtype of scala.AnyVal. The <(x: Int) method is utilized to return true if this value is less than x, false otherwise.

Method Definition: def <(x: Int): Boolean

Return Type: It returns true if this value is less than x, otherwise false.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program of Short <(x: Int) ``// method `` ` `// Creating object ``object` `GfG ``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method ``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String]) ``    ``{ ``     ` `        ``// Applying Short <(x: Int) function ``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``998``.toShort).``<``(``999``:``Int)``         ` `        ``// Displays output ``        ``println(result) ``     ` `    ``} ``} `

Output:

```True
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program of Short <(x: Int) ``// method `` ` `// Creating object ``object` `GfG ``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method ``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String]) ``    ``{ ``     ` `        ``// Applying Short <(x: Int) function ``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``102``.toShort).``<``(``101``:``Int)``         ` `        ``// Displays output ``        ``println(result) ``     ` `    ``} ``} `

Output:

```false
```
