1 Newborn State

When we create a thread it will be in Newborn State.

We can move it to running mode by invoking the start() method and it can be killed by using stop() method.

4 Blocked State

A thread is called in Blocked State when it is not allowed to entering in Runnable State or Running State.

It happens when thread is in waiting mode, suspended or in sleeping mode.

We can kill thread by invoking stop() method for that particular thread and send it to be in Dead State.
