Here are the various states in the life cycle of a thread −

It is the situation when the instance of the thread is created but the Start method is not called.

The Ready State

It is the situation when the thread is ready to run and waiting CPU cycle.

The Not Runnable State

  • Sleep method has been called
  • Wait method has been called
  • Blocked by I/O operations
