Pls explain me for the following statement. It say�s �The thread's priority the lower of the two priorities.� I would like to know lower of which two priorities?
"If a thread's priority is set within the range of Thread.MIN_PRIORITY and Thread.MAX_PRIORITY but higher Than the thread group�s maximum priority, it will compile fine but in runtime the scheduling system will assign The thread's priority the lower of the two priorities."

The two priorities being referred to, are the priority of the thread, and the maximum priority of the thread group that the thread is assigned to. Basically, what the statement is pointing out is that the thread group will limit the thread priority of the threads in the group. Any thread with a priority, that is higher than the maximum, will be lowered to the maximum thread priority of the group.
