You can't know which ID will be returned. It is an arbitraty number chosen by the JVM. What you can know is the name of the thread (in case you set this upon Thread creation).

I did read that we cannot know the id that will be returned then how should we select it in the options do we see the lifetime of the thread and then choose the answer or what is the way followed

Thank you for your help I found out from the question that it is answered on the basis of number of threads as no two threads can have the same id and also which one is alive or blocked Thank you
