If any fynction to which a separate Thread is Allocated then if this Function takes Some argument then Why Parameter is always passed with the data type as Object. If you cahnge the Data Type from Object ro String then you will get build error.

The Code snippet is

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading;
 
namespace ConsoleApplication3
{
    class Program
    {
       
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
             Program pg = new Program();
             Thread thread = new Thread((pg.Testing));
             thread.Start("Inside");
             for (int i = 0; i < 15; i++)
             {
                 Console.WriteLine("Outside");
                 Thread.Sleep(100);
             }
            Console.ReadLine();  
        }
        public void Testing(Object value)
        {
            for (int i = 0; i < 12; i++)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Inside Thread : " + value);
                Thread.Sleep(100);
            }
        }
    }
}
