You can use Math.min()

min = Math.min(A, Math.min(B, ....

or use if

int min = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
if (A

No, you can have only two parameters so as objects showed above, you need to nest them

Here are two ways to achieve the same.

Using list and sort it:
List<Integer> list = new ArrayList<Integer>();
        list.add(100);
        list.add(10);
        list.add(15);
        Collections.sort(list);
        for(int a:list)
            System.out.println(a);
       

Using Sorted set i.e tree set
        Set<Integer> set = new TreeSet<Integer>();
        set.add(100);
        set.add(10);
        set.add(15);
       
        for(int a:set)
            System.out.println(a);


First element of these collections will always be the minimum.
