hi buddy @Nidhi2

There are many methods that are readily available with datetime class like this
**AddDays(number in integer) **
AddMonths(number in integer)
AddHours(number in integer)
AddMinutes(number in integer)
AddSeconds(number in integer)
AddTicks(number in integer) and many more…

–all these methods will take integer as argument (number in integer), and you can even pass the numbers in negative that would subtract the number of days.

So to get the current date and time we use, Datetime.Now and to subtract 15 mins from it, from one of the mentioned above methods of Datetime, we use AddMinutes()
like this
–This will subtract 15 minutes from the current time…buddy

For more info on methods available like this in Datetime class in C#, kindly have a view on this that could help you in future as well

Cheers @Nidhi2
