A try statement must always have a ............. associated with it.

1. catch
2. throws
3. catch,finally or both
4. throw
5. finally
Why is finally wrong as the word "must" is emphasised?

option 3 is correct.A try statement must have either a catch or a finally clause associated with it always.It can have both together also.Nothing is wrong in that.

Adding to what Rajashree has said...
If your program has a try, catch and a finally block...the order in which they have to appear is
1. Try
2. Catch, and
3. Finally
Any other order will invoke the compiler's wrath
