Hi! in the above program after executing the finally block, the exception thrown by the catch block is not handled by the default handler or it is not passed to the main method, why?

Hii..
If a finally block is specified after the catch block,then
regardless of whether the catch block itself throws an
exception,finally block is executed.Hence whatever exception
that is thrown in catch block will be suppressed.
Just comment the finally block..
The program will throws ArithmeticException
Hope this helps

the exception is not supressed if you allow the finally clause to end, just comment return 30;

throwing the exception messsage is preceded by the return in the
finally clause
This happens in both exceptions wheather thrown in the try block or in the catch block
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
