Guys,
one issue:

And given the following four code fragments:
I. void doStuff() {
II. void doStuff() throws MyException {
III. void doStuff() throws RuntimeException {
IV. void doStuff() throws ArithmeticException {

An overriding method cannot throw checked exceptions that are
broader than those thrown by the overridden method.



Does this statement refer to the actual question or is it just a general statement? Because in the overriden method there is no exception declaration. Or is it there to tell me that a Runtime Exception is possible in submethod even if there is no exc. decl. in super meth.?

It's just a general statement/reminder.

ps - I removed the extra / from your open code tag so it displays right.
