Question is incomplete you didn't mention what values of a and b are:

if exception is thrown in try then catch is executed.then finally block will run. otherwise only finally will be printed

you are not mention which parameters passed to a, b in the method. so it is not possible to say the answer.
one point:
1) Exception arises catch and finally block executed.
2) No Exceptions are arised only finaly block executed

Probably it is a "divide by zero" which throws the exception, so you are getting the output as
Exception
finally
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
