// extracted using getMinutes().
var minutes = DateObj.getMinutes();
  
// Printing minute.
console.log(minutes);

    // Here a date has been assigned 
    // while creating Date object
    var DateObj = new Date('October 35, 1996 05:35:32');
      
    // minutes from above DateObj is 
    // being extracted using getMinutes()
    var minutes = DateObj.getMinutes();
