Question 59.
Given that method aMethod() throws BaseException, SubException and RuntimeException of the following exception hierarchy

Ans is : C and D.
Can't B also be considered correct. Even though it is not required to throw (handle or declare) a Runtime Exception, its not illegal to throw (handle or declare)it.
In option B we are declaring the BaseException anyway, and in addition also throw Runtime...is this wrong?

You're right, B is legal. You don't need to declare that a method throws a RuntimeException, but you can.
