**Returns:** This function returns the **period** which is the Period object parsed with the given number of Days.

Below is the implementation of Period.ofDays() method:

**Example 1:**

`// Java code to demonstrate ofDays() method` ` ` `import` `java.time.Period;` ` ` `class` `GFG {` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)` ` ` `{` ` ` ` ` `// Get the number of Days` ` ` `int` `numberOfDays = ` `5` `;` ` ` ` ` `// Parse the numberOfDays into Period` ` ` `// using ofDays() method` ` ` `Period p = Period.ofDays(numberOfDays);` ` ` ` ` `System.out.println(p.getYears() + ` `" Years\n"` ` ` `+ p.getMonths() + ` `" Months\n"` ` ` `+ p.getDays() + ` `" Days"` `);` ` ` `}` `}` |

**Output:**

0 Years 0 Months 5 Days

**Example 2:**

`// Java code to demonstrate ofDays() method` ` ` `import` `java.time.Period;` ` ` `class` `GFG {` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)` ` ` `{` ` ` ` ` `// Get the number of Days` ` ` `int` `numberOfDays = -` `5` `;` ` ` ` ` `// Parse the numberOfDays into Period` ` ` `// using ofDays() method` ` ` `Period p = Period.ofDays(numberOfDays);` ` ` ` ` `System.out.println(p.getYears() + ` `" Years\n"` ` ` `+ p.getMonths() + ` `" Months\n"` ` ` `+ p.getDays() + ` `" Days"` `);` ` ` `}` `}` |

**Output:**

0 Years 0 Months -5 Days
