It is a stateful intermediate operation i.e, it may incorporate state from previously seen elements when processing new elements.
Stream<T> sorted() Where, Stream is an interface and T is the type of stream elements.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation of the function in a better way.
Example 1 :
The sorted stream is : -18 -9 0 4 25
Example 2 :
The sorted stream is : GFG Geeks GeeksQuiz GeeksforGeeks for
Example 3 :
1, 100 5, 10 10, 20 50, 2000
