c# throw exception

I am actually getting the error message: "Bummer! I entered "25". I expected "Value is out of bounds!" but got "Value is out of bounds" instead."

What on earth am I supposed to do with that information??

Program.cs
int value = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

try
{
if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));
}
catch(Exception)
{
Console.WriteLine("Value is out of bounds");
}

The challenges can be rather picky about output strings. If you look closely at the "Bummer" message:

  • ... I expected "Value is out of bounds!" :point_left: notice the exclamation point
  • ... but got "Value is out of bounds" :point_left: exclamation point is missing
