following question is from mock exam
Name the superclass of all exceptions in the Java language.
A. Throwable
B. Exception
C. Error
D. Object
Corrrect answer is A
I thought it should be B as Throwable is parent of class Exception and Error and All exceptions' parent is Exception class
Please correct me if I am wrong
Thanks in advance

I guess : because Exception, being also an Exception, isn't superclass of itself

SCJP2. Please Indent your code using UBB Code

Not a very well written question; where did you find it? Object is also a superclass of all exceptions.
