Q) Which exception will catch first and what about finally statement?



    int b = 0;

    int c = 10 / b;


catch (Exception e)



catch (DivideByZeroException ae)






Multiple catch blocks are evaluated from top to bottom, but only one catch block is executed for each exception thrown. The order of your catch blocks is important because .NET will go to the first catch block that is polymorphically compatible with the thrown exception. It is important to place catch blocks with the most specific — most derived — exception classes first.

In your example, the 1st catch is type of Exception of which is base class for all exceptions and thereby polymorphically compatible with all thrown exceptions. so 2nd catch never can get execute.

And regarding finally block, it always executes after the try and catch blocks execute. A finally block is always executed, regardless of whether an exception is thrown or whether a catch block matching the exception type is found.
