            = ZoneOffset.ofHours(5);
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 1: "
                           + zoneOffset1);
  
        // Get the ZoneOffset instance
        ZoneOffset zoneOffset2
            = ZoneOffset.ofHours(5);
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 2: "
                           + zoneOffset2);
  
        // Using equals() method
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 1 "
                           + "is equal to ZoneOffset 2: "
                           + zoneOffset1.equals(zoneOffset2));
    }
}
