public void divide(int a, int b) {
try {
int c = a / b;
}
catch (Exception e) {
System.out.print("Exception ");
} finally {
System.out.println("Finally");
}
a) Prints out: Finally
b) Prints out: Exception
c) Prints out: Exception Finally
d) No output
I thought the answer is (a) but it is (c), can someone pls explain?

Hi geeta, none of the answers are correct because the resulting output is unpredictable (it depends on the parameter of the 'divide' method).
For example:
If we call divide(10,10) the output will be finally
if we cal divide (10,0) the output will be Exception Finally
The finally statement is always executed disregarding if it triggers an exception or not.
The answer is: Non of the above
Hope this helps.
