Catch block not recognized -- am I misunderstanding the prompt?

I added a catch block following the previous video very closely. Unfortunately, I keep getting the response, "Bummer: Did you add a catch block?"

After checking my work again, I'm wondering if I'm misunderstanding what the prompt means by wrapping the "testing logic". Is "testing logic" referring to something other than what's on line 14?

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

if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}

try
{
    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));
}
catch(System.Exception)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Value is out of bounds!");
}

This is the testing logic

if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));

and is what should be included in your try
