In the below, Why divide by zero error is not raising? It is compiling and running without any exception. How?

You're incementing the value of i before it is used in the division, so divide by 0 is never happening.

Put a sysout to see tha value of i just after your sysout for the value of k and you'll see.

Did you ever divide by 0? Display i inside your loop and think about the first time through.
