Say there is a try block in which an exception is thrown. But the only exception that can be caught is one that is a parent of the exception that is actually thrown.
Will this exception be caught ?

Yes. Whenever you have a catch block which handles a particular exception, then all the exceptions which are the subclasses of that particular Exception are also caught with the same block.
I agree. Here's the link:
