Welcome to the Ranch, jioy.
Finally clauses always execute regardless of the throwing or not of an exception in try's . In this case "finally{ c++; } is executed after "catch(Level2Exception e)" failed to catch the thrown Level1Exception. Then "catch(Level1Exception e)" catches the exception. Eventually "finally{g++};" gets executed.

try {
try {
switch (x) {
case 1: throw new Level1Exception();
case 2: throw new Level2Exception();
case 3: throw new Level3Exception();
}
a++;
}

how come above segment compiled ? i tot that, a try statement shld end with a catch or finally clause ?
how did a++ managed to fit in ?

Let me add something according to Jose
I trace the coding once,because ensure the coding without compiler error.

Hope this help

Actually,when you do some Dan's mock question,make sure to look the coding carefully that without compiler error.
So,we should know how to do the compiler job,or to be a real compiler
