Quantifier is a mechanism that is helpful in binding variables together and creates a proposition along with semantics that are embedded.

**Types of Quantifiers and Rules**

There are two types of Quantifiers in Java. They are:

**Type1: Existential Quantifiers**

- Quantifiers that reads “$” as “there exists”.
*“**$**x P**(x)”*is true when*an*instance can be found which when plugged in for*x,*makes*P*(*x*) true.- Like dis-junctioning over entire universe -
*$**x P**(x )**Û**P (x1)**Ú**P**(x2)**Ú**P**(x3)**Ú**…*

**Type 2: Universal Quantifiers**

- Quantifiers that reads “"” as “for all”.
- “
**"***x P*(*x*)” is true when*every*instance of*x*makes*P*(*x*) true when plugged in. - Like con-junctioning over entire universe -
**"***x P*(*x*) Û*P*(*x*1)**Ù***P*(*x*2)**Ù***P*(*x*3)**Ù**…

**Advantages of Quantifiers**

- Quantifiers can be parsed even though they are Multivariate. For example :While evaluating expressions such as $
*x*"*y*$*z P*(*x,y,z*), it is important to translate these propositions in sequential order in English : There is an x such that for all y there is a z such that P (x,y,z) holds. - Quantifier’s supports zero length matches which means that begin and end indices will have zero.
- Quantifiers are capable to capture groups and characters classed efficiently.

**Disadvantages of Quantifiers**

- Quantifiers are complex for any developers to implement in basic java application.

**Best Practices while using Quantifiers**

- Each quantifier should be placed before a propositional function and finally binds with a semantic value to obtain a proposition.
- Rebinding of variables in Quantifiers is not allowed. For example,
*"**x**(**"**x P**(x) )*is completely wrong. - Order or sequence of binding is very important in Quantifiers.
