AssertionError extends Error that extends Throwable.
So when AssertionError is thrown by main can also be said as
Error is thrown by main or
Throwable is thrown by main.
Hope that clears.

Gitesh, when you copy a question from a book or mock exam, you need to quote your sources.

Hi,
Do Remember the following hirerachy :



or you can say that
Object ----> Throwable ----> Error

So if an instance of type Error is thrown then throwable can catch that, but
Exception can not.
