As we know, that this refers to the current class object, therefore, it must be similar to the current class object. However, there can be two main advantages of passing this into a method
instead of the current class object.
this is a final variable. Therefore, this cannot be assigned to any new value whereas the current class object might not be final and can be changed.
this can be used in the synchronized block.
