Below is a question from Enthuware(Q10 of Test 3)


What will the following class print ?



It prints out 99, 11.

The method on Line 13 has a return type as int. However, there's no return statement in the method body. Why? Is it because the first statement is throw and statements after throw won't be reachable?
