Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// YearMonth.minusYears() method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create YearMonth object
        YearMonth yearmonth
            = YearMonth.parse("2020-05");
        // It is May 2020
  
        // apply minusYears() method
        // of YearMonth class
        YearMonth result
            = yearmonth.minusYears(5);
        // Subtracting 5 years will turn it
        // into May 2015
  
        // print year and month both
        System.out.println(
            "Modified YearMonth: "
            + result);
    }
}
Output:
Modified YearMonth: 2015-05

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// YearMonth.minusYears() method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create YearMonth object
        YearMonth yearmonth
            = YearMonth.of(2019, 10);
  
        // apply minusYears() method
        // of YearMonth class
        YearMonth result
            = yearmonth.minusYears(10);
        // Subtracting 10 years will
        // turn it into October 2009
  
        // print only year
        System.out.println(
            "Modified Year: "
            + result.get(ChronoField.YEAR));
