class AEx extends RuntimeException {}
class BEx extends Exception {}
class CEx extends AEx {}

class RuntimeExceptions {

    void m1() throws AEx, BEx, CEx { }

    void m2() throws Exception { throwB(true); throwAC(false); }

    void m3() { throwAC(false); }

    void m4() throws AEx, BEx { throwAC(true); }

    void m5(boolean value) {
        try {
        } catch (Exception ex) {
        } finally {

    void throwB(boolean value) throws CEx, BEx {
        if (!value) throw new BEx();

    void throwAC(boolean value) {
        if (!value) throw new AEx();
        throw new CEx();

A. m1, m5
B. m1, m2, m3, m4, m5
C. m2, m4, m5

User comments below. All of them might not be correct.

Answer is e...every one will compile because the rule is that it is ok to not catch the methods that can throwunchecked exceptions....and we should catch or declare throws when method is likely to throw checked exceptions..Runtime exceptions are unchecked exceptions

Ans is we have three UserDefined classes AEx,BEx,CEx.. in this AEx and CEx are Checked Exceptions Bcz they are extending th RunTimeException class which is Checked Exception...

in the m1() we are saying throws AEx,BEx,CEx Means Any of these exceptions raised than this method is not handled,the caller of this method should handle here noProblem...

m2() specifies throws as Exception so No problem here...

m3() here Exception wil thrown type of Aex so the program terminate abnormally But the No Compile time error Bcz it is an Unchecked Exception...

m4() here CEx exception wil thrown but in the throws we specify its parent class AEx so no Problem here....

m5() in finaally block Exception wil occur But that is Unchecked Exception  so no error

So all methods will compile
